Good News - Evolution MS accepted

Good news, for Dr. Martin Lind and for the Lab (Kylie Yarlett, Julia Reger, Mauricio Carter and me). Martin’s Evolution MS, "Can plasticity aid diversification? Testing the alignment between plasticity, Gmax and the predicted response to predator-specific selection in Daphnia pulex” has been accepted pending a few more improvements and super constructive suggestions from the AE and referees.

In particular, I’d like to share the best comment I’ve had from an AE in ages:

"Despite my skepticism, I think there are stronger results here that the authors do not emphasize as much (the mis-aligned plasticity) that are equally important, and, frankly, this is the most interesting manuscript I’ve seen in the past year."


Well done Martin! Good AND interesting science. And a team effort getting the data and crafting the analysis to address some very interesting questions.
