Visit by Prof Marlene Zuk to KVPY and CES

I am on the core-committee of KVPY from July this year and got an opportunity invite speakers for the KVPY Vijyoshi camp.

I (and everyone else involved) was thrilled that Prof Marlene Zuk accepted the invitation! She visited India to deliver spectacular talks at KVPY-2019 on sexual selection. She also attended and gave a talk at a mini-symposium/discussion on animal signals in CES.

Here is a picture of her with our lab:

New paper by Jaideep Joshi: Demographic noise and cost of greenbeard can facilitate greenbeard cooperation

We are delighted to announce a new paper from the lab!

Jaideep Joshi and Vishwesha Guttal, 2018, Demographic noise and cost of greenbeard can facilitate greenbeard cooperation, Evolution, DOI:

This is the second paper of our former PhD student Jaideep Joshi. Fantastic work, involving some hard-core analytical and simulational work to address an interesting problem on the evolution of greenbeard cooperation.

Congratulations to Jaideep!

While you are here, you must also check the previous paper of Jaideep on how mobility promotes cooperation, published last year in Plos Computational Biology.
