Insects and Evolution

A common darter (Sympetrum striolatum) copyright belongs to ME

Apparently North Carolina State University has an official research blog (called ‘The Abstract’), which is a pretty great idea. One of the newest posts is by a post-doctoral researcher named Michelle Trautwein, who has written a nice overview of a review paper that she (and several co-authors) have just had published in the 2012 Annual Review of Entomology.

Unfortunately I don’t have access to that journal, but I recommend you read the blog entry to find out some interesting facts about dragonflies, termites, and the latest findings as regards insect evolution…
