The final reading group will meet this Friday (20th November) at 1pm, We will be reading two papers on animal and plant competition, one by Michael Kasumovic and colleagues and one by Daniel Falster and colleagues.
Michael Kasumovic is an evolutionary biologist who studies the innate differences between males and females and how the environment, both social and ecological, modifies these differences. His study species include insects, spiders and humans. Daniel Falster is an evolutionary biologist and ecologist with a particular interest in using mathematical models to test fundamental ideas about the processes shaping biological communities.
Michael's paper is in Animal Behavior titled Assessment during aggressive contests between male jumping spiders, and Daniel paper can be found in bioRxiv titled Multi-trait eco-evolutionary dynamics explain niche diversity and evolved neutrality in forests
