Last week I was awarded the 'Best 2015 Published Paper' award from the School of Animal Biology, here at UWA. The prize came with 250$, a very nice Christmas gift, so thanks so much, SAB! The paper that won this award was my 2015 Evolution paper on sperm competition and the evolution of arm strength in a frog with multimale amplexus, which I co-authored with Dale Roberts and Leigh Simmons. The next chapter on this story has just been published as another paper in Evolution, this time with paternity data and videos of the multimale amplexus to make the story more complete! This second paper also has the honours student Evan Thyer as another author.
