Science Magazine: Science Magazine is the peer-reviewed academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and one of the world’s top academic journals. Catherine and Karin’s article is titled “Female toads engaging in adaptive hybridization prefer high-quality heterospecifics as mates.”
Catherine is a member of Karin’s lab and studies hybrid behavior and the role it plays in gene flow between species, as well as the significance of multimodal signaling. Karin is a behavioral and evolutionary ecologist who blends field and laboratory work to understand sexual selection, the evolution of mate choice and their roles in hybridization, species boundaries, and the origins of new species.
