Ecology and Evolution – Issue 2.4 is now Live!

April 13, 2012

Ecology and EvolutionThe April issue of Ecology and Evolution has now been published. This issue includes a number of top quality papers, including the article which was the 100th article published in the journal Projected changes in distributions of Australian tropical savanna birds under climate change using three dispersal scenarios by April E. Reside, Jeremy VanDerWal and Alex S. Kutt.

The paper Egg incubation temperature differently affects female and male hatching dynamics and larval fitness in a leafhopper by  Julien Chuche and Denis Thiéry focusses on  how egg incubation temperature affects development and sex ratio in a leafhopper. It highlights that incubation temperatures experienced by eggs, or more generally the temperature experienced during a narrow window early in development, can have quite large effects on development rate and operational sex ratio in insects. This finding could help understanding the geographical colonization pattern of this grape disease vector.

These are just a small selection of the articles within this issue. Other topics covered include random regression methods based on 31 years of data of owl clutch size, genetic diversity of platypus populations and soil management in semiarid rainfed agriculture. Enjoy reading this issue, and submit your next paper!
