The Evolution of Seasonal Camouflage in Snowshoe Hares

Our most recent work on the genetic basis of polymorphic seasonal camouflage in snowshoe hares is now out in Science. Outstanding effort by Good lab grad Matt Jones, with crucial collaborations from hare whisperer Scott Mills (UM), Zef Melo-Ferreira (CIBIO), Paulo Alves (CIBIO), Jeff Jensen (ASU/EPFL), and others.

This one was many years in the making.

The paper is available here
