Congratulations to David Pfennig for his upcoming article in American Scientist. The article, entitled, “Evolution and the Flexible Organism,” asks, “Do environmentally induced changes to individuals affect natural selection, and if so, how?” Check out more info here.
You can also hear David and recent UNC graduate student Nick Levis on the Big Biology Podcast. Both the article and podcast highlight David’s ideas and research on the role of phenotypic plasticity in facilitating adaptive evolution in novel environments. Congratulations, David!
