In the end, though, we nominated a fascinating post from Jonathan Richardson about microgeographic adaptation and the spatial scale of evolution. If you've ever wondered just how “local” local adaptation is, this post will give you some food for thought.
By the way, it’s great to be getting so many guest posts, and we’d like to encourage more. If you’re a researcher in evolutionary ecology or eco-evolutionary dynamics and you’d like to contribute, please feel free to send an email to Andrew Hendry!
The theme of the new Carnival, at Synthetic Daisies, is evolutionary games. Enjoy.
Fig. 1. Evolutionary game theory. I used to own a stand-up Millipede console. Now that was a great video game; I wish I still owned it. Galaga, Defender, Millipede, Donkey Kong, Tempest, Q*bert, Marble Madness… those were the days.
