Reading October 20th

Here is the paper for today. Not too long.


Final Meeting of the Semester, May 18th, 2015

Here is a great paper to end the semester. Thanks for everyone that joined in the discussions and lets plan on keeping this thing rolling into next semester. Spread the word about PAInt in Biology and EECB. I am sure that there are people that would be interested, but do not know about it.

A conceptual framework for studying the strength of plant–animal mutualistic interactions

PAInt Meeting! April 27th, 2014

Greetings PAInters,

It’s been a while since we have met, but I think the distractions are starting to wane. That means it’s time to have another distraction. Sharon Strauss is the invited EECB colloquium speaker this week, so I figured that we should read one of her papers. She has a lot great work that is highly relevant to many of the topics we read in PAInt. Check out here publications here.

Here is the paper for this week. We will meet tomorrow at Craft at 5:30 pm. Food will be provided. Pizza?

Mutual Feedbacks Maintain Both Genetic and Species Diversity in a Plant Community

Reading For March 9th

Greetings here is the paper that Lindsay picked for today. Also, there is a chance that we won’t meet today. Biology is hiring and there will be a candidate reception that we should all try to attend. I will let everyone know once I find out.

The role of seed dispersal, pollination and historical effects on genetic patterns of an insular plant that has lost its only seed disperser

Monday January 26th


Hope everyone had a relaxing and fun holiday break. Is there any interest in meeting this Monday? We could read a paper and discuss party plans. Here is a paper that I recently found that looks interesting.

Geographic structure in metabolome and herbivore community co-occurs with genetic structure in plant defence genes
