A new episode of The Molecular Ecologist Podcast is now out on Anchor.fm. In this episode,
- Sarah Shainker tells us about how population genetic structure works differently in river drainages;
- Kelle Freel recaps her reading on the history of rabbits and rabbit-killing viruses in Australia;
- Jeremy Yoder reports on his misadventures in sourdough starter cultivation and the community genetics of everyone’s new favorite hobby; and
- Katie Grogan talks about the sites she follows for professional development tips, going all the way back to grad school.
You can hear more about the history of rabbit introduction and (attempts at) ecological management in Australia on these two episodes of Stuff You Missed in History Class.
There’s more testimony and recommendations to fight racism in science, and our fields specifically, are in this Nature feature, this editorial in Nature Ecology and Evolution, and this open letter to the EEB community on Medium.
