Theory proposes that genomic admixture between formerly reproductively isolated populations can generate phenotypic novelty for selection to act upon. Secondary contact may therefore be a significant promoter of phenotypic novelty that allows species to overcome environmental challenges and adapt to novel environments, including during adaptive radiation.(More)
A major challenge in network ecology is to describe the full-range of species interactions in a community to create highly-resolved food-webs. We developed a molecular approach based on DNA full barcoding and mini-barcoding to describe difficult to observe plant-leaf miner-parasitoid interactions, consisting of animals commonly regarded as agricultural(More)
Stream-like data sources, such as a collection of RSS feeds, can be challenging to summarize as the corpus is ever growing and the nature of the data evolves over time. This project implements a web application for managing RSS feeds that addresses this challenge. LDA topic modeling is performed at daily intervals and linkages between learned topics from(More)
