In 1951 Mary Talbot began a 26 year research project to study and document the populations of ants in the Edwin S, George Reserve. This is the culmination of that effort.

We test whether the Y chromosome penetration of the species barrier acts through sperm traits by assessing sperm characteristics of wild-caught males ... We found that both sperm count (SC) and sperm velocity were significantly reduced across the natural spectrum of hybrids.

Ancestral state reconstructions and statistical comparisons of color pattern divergence in Tanganyikan Synodontis indicate that Müllerian mimicry in these catfish has developed through diversification of an aposematic common ancestor with subsequent conservative mutualistic coevolution among its daughter lineages.
Dan Chang and Thomas Duda, 2/15/2012
Dan Chang & Thomas Duda, two University of Michigan evolutionary biologists report that their reconstruction of the evolutionary history of these genes has revealed rapid and continuous gene duplication over the last 11 million years that is coupled with the accelerated rates of conotoxin evolution.
