I just completed a 4-minute lightning talk on my recent work with Dr. Corrie Moreau on defensive trait evolution in ants, in the final session of talks at the SSB 2017 Standalone Meeting in Baton Rouge! For more information, see the published paper in Evolution and/or the brief blurb I wrote about it on U. Chicago’s ScienceLife blog.
