Just getting ready to head off to PDX in a few hours! I'm happy to announce that we'll be presenting two talks examining the mechanisms of convergent evolution. First, Jeff McKinnon will present on convergent losses of sexual dimorphism in stickleback. In two populations we've examined, females have convergently evolved (as stickleback seem to like to do) bright red throat coloration as males have. This talk will be in Session: Sexual selection 2, Day: Saturday Time: 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM, Location:C120-122. I'm going to follow that up by presenting postdoc Matt Louder's work on "Genomic perspectives on the recurrent evolution of brood parasitic behavior", Session: Behavior / genomics, Day: Sunday, Time: 4:15 PM - 4:29 PM , Location: B113. I'm excited about both of these talks, so please join in for the fun!
