New publication: the genetics of urban invasions

Our new review paper on the genetic processes and considerations underlying urban invasions is now out in Oecologia! Check it out HERE.

This review originated from a class on invasion genetics and was spearheaded by Emily Reed, a PhD candidate in the Burford Reiskind Lab doing fascinating research on the urban landscape genomics of Aedes mosquitoes in the Raleigh area—focusing on the invasive Asian Tiger Mosquito A. albopictus. An additional big shout out to coauthor Dr. Megan Serr, whose PhD research focused on the reproductive behavior and mate choice of wild house mice.
