Twitter Web Client : Bird feathers have growth bars that can be used, like tree rings, to measure growth rates (ptilochronology). In awesome paper by Ryan Terrill they reveal dramatic patterns in rate of feather growth across the Neotropics: bioone.org/doi/full/10.16…

Twitter Web Client : Our preprint describing some of the cool things that SLiM and #msprime can achieve by cooperating. Tree sequences allow us simulate models at previously unthinkable scales, and seamlessly blend forward and backward sims. biorxiv.org/content/early/…
