Coevolvers

Palouse Coevolution Discussion Group

managed by
Devin M. Drown


We meet weekly to discuss papers and current research in coevolution. We adhere to a strict sense of coevolution (reciprocal selection) and are interested in both empirical research and theory work. The group of regular attendees includes faculty, post-docs, and graduate students from Washington State University and the University of Idaho.

This is a blog based on the papers and discussions of this group. After each week's reading, I will make a post describing some of the topics that came up regarding the details of the paper. Some past posts include:


Previously, we published a review of the Geographic Mosaic Theory of Coevolution for Heredity. This was a very exciting collaborative effort by the group and a significant accomplishment for a "journal club." Working on such a project together for several months forced us to examine critically our own opinions of coevolution and how they fit with other perspectives.

Gomulkiewicz R, Drown DM, Dybdahl MF, Godsoe W, Nuismer SL, Pepin KM, Ridenhour BJ, Smith CI, and Yoder JB. 2007.  Do’s and Don’ts of testing the geographic mosaic theory of coeveolution. Heredity 98: 249-258.


Below is a list of our current readings. The list will be updated as the semester proceeds. If you're looking for past semesters, then click here.
