Can’t Get Enough of this Week’s Journal Club Topic?

We’re going to be discussing some classic papers on species concepts and species delimitation in Journal Club this week. Later in the week, at a day and time that have yet to be determined, members of the Glor Lab will be meeting to discuss two very recent papers from Systematic Biology that use a variety of methods to delimit species in nature based on both morphological and molecular data. The papers are Zapata and Jimenez’s paper on inferring morphological gaps across a geographic landscape and Harrington and Near’s paper on species delimitation in Snubnose darters. ┬áCheck out the papers and drop me a line if you’d like to join our discussion so I can let you know when we’ll be meeting (we’re trying to figure out everyone’s course schedules before scheduling this time).
