Dozens of talks from the Evolution 2015 meetings are on YouTube

If, like me, you didn’t make it to the 2015 Evolution meetings — maybe the logistics of a trip to Brazil were beyond your financial and/or temporal means — you can make up for it with the big cache of videos posted to the conference’s YouTube channel. This is the second year the joint annual meeting of the American Society of Naturalists, the Society of Systematic Biologists, and the Society for the Study of Evolution has taken video of research presentations (with the permission of the presenters), and it’s good to see the practice continuing.
There are many, many talks to peruse, but here’s just one that looks like it’ll be of interest to Molecular Ecologist readers: Diego F. Alvarado-Serrano proposing a new, spatially-oriented version of the site-frequency spectrum, that may help understand historical changes in species’ ranges.
