Carnival of Evolution #56 is now posted. This month’s contribution from eco-evo evo-eco is a great post by Victor Frankel (who also did our featured post last month!) on how the rise of the Isthmus of Panama has affected evolution of the local species. Check out all the other cool posts at the Carnival for the latest from the evolution blogosphere.
The theme of this Carnival is world travel. But why stop with just one planet’s worth of eco-evolutionary dynamics? In the spirit of Andrew’s recent post asking whether eco-evolutionary dynamics are stronger in the tropics: should we expect eco-evolutionary dynamics to be stronger or weaker on other planets? Perhaps it depends on how tropical their climates are. I'll leave you to ponder that, inspired by this astrobiology-themed image (from NASA!).
