My January was really busy. I worked through the galley proofs of my book. That was both fun and a lot of work. And classes have started. I am teaching online, which is an interesting challenge. So far, so good!

Also, I am working on the webpage for the stock center (and it should go live pretty soon) and several papers. Lots of work, as I said, but fun.

The NSF project studying the origin of the Amazon molly is humming along and the first data looks really interesting. More on that later!

Both Trains and Rodet had papers from their dissertation accepted. Trai’s work is already online. Rodet’s paper is an account of the amazing expedition he conducted in Haiti with other students from the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Another is accepted and will come out in Ecology and Evolution any day now.
