Each week Dave Munger, Razib Khan and I discuss an article from the ResearchBlogging.org aggregator. This week we discuss a potentially revolutionary new model published last week in PLoS Biology. It seems like an elegant framework that incorporates phenotypic plasticity into ecology and has the potential for tremendous predictive power in my opinion. Listen and leave on a comment at ResearchBlogging.org to weigh in!
