As a reminder, please nominate your best of your last several blog posts (or comments) for formal evaluation. Feel free to edit or append if you see fit. I read all of your work, but appreciate focusing on your best efforts for a grade.
For this next week, in light of dissecting the Travisano et al “Chance, History, and Adaptation” paper, please write on:
1. What macroevolutionary phenomenon would you like to test with microbes?
2. Do you believe that microevolutionary models can shed light on macro-scale processes? Why/why not?
Thanks much to RobH who took nice photos of our chalkboard models in today’s recitation. It is posted here: chalkboard summaries of Travisano et al
PS: Some of you might be interested in a new article about our experimental evolution research with high school students. See: http://unhmagazine.unh.edu/w12/cooper.html
