HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO THE HARVESTMEN
Post date: Jun 13, 2014 2:27:34 PM
Once again my famous friend Billy Requena was interviewed about some of his work on paternal care in harvestmen! With Father's day approaching in the USA, the magazine New Scientist published a great story about the evolution of exclusive paternal care, citing our work with harvestmen in the first few paragraphs, then talking about frogs, fish and birds, and interviewing experts from all over the world about the topic. You can check the full story here, but you need a subscription for New Scientitst's online content; or you can buy the latest issue of the magazine and read it in print. The actual papers reporting our findings were originally published by PloS One (2013) and Animal Behaviour (2009).
