Congrats to fellow Dechroner, Luke Harmon, who along with several colleagues has a nice paper in this week's Nature. In this article, they describe their research on how the diversification of species via an adaptive radiation strongly affects the ecosystem itself, through a series of studies of sticklebacks. There's a nice News & Views on their article as well. Good work, Luke (et al.)!
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
