This group intensive study crosses traditional disciplinary lines to examine discoveries in natural history, ecology and evolution made through the innovative analysis of molecular genetic polymorphisms. Class time is devoted to the discussion of exemplary or representative primary research articles. During Spring 2019 we will focus on phenotypic plasticity and its interactions with evolutionary processes such as local adaptation and the rate of evolution. Specific topics/methods/markers/taxa depend on student interests.
