New Journal of Zoology Podcast

JZO Podcast Autumn 2013A new episode of the Journal of Zoology podcast is now online and you can listen to it here.

In this episode, Sara Helms Cahan talks to us about reproductive division of labour in eusocial species and how it emerged spontaneously in harvester ant queens in their lab experiment, we learn from Rudemar Ernesto Blanco how the ecology of extinct sabretooth predators could be deduced from their living analogue such as the southern short-tailed opossum, and Justin Carroll tells us about their field experiment comparing the effectiveness of two contrasting anti-predator strategies, crypsis and aposematism, using artificial prey.
