National Geographic coverage

some of our recent work from Axel's group in Konstanz has been covered by National Geographic. This was on the parallel evolution of thick vs thin lips of Midas cichlids in crater lakes and great lakes in Nicaragua and is mostly based on the findings from two recent papers:

Elmer KR, Lehtonen TK, Kautt A, Harrod C, Meyer A (2010) Rapid sympatric ecological differentiation of crater lake cichlid fishes in historic times. BMC Biology, 8, 60.
Manousaki T, Hull P, Kusche H, Machado-Schiaffino G, Franchini P, Harrod C, Elmer KR, Meyer A (2013). Parsing parallel evolution: ecological divergence and differential gene expression in thick-lipped Midas cichlid fishes of Nicaragua. Molecular Ecology, 22, 650-669.
