Evolutionary rates AustrolebiasThis week I posted a manuscript on bioRxiv. Here is the link to it:

“A case for sympatric speciation by cannibalism in South-American annual killifish (Austrolebias)”

We demonstrate that large Austrolebias evolved at least three times from small ones. For one case, we argue that piscivory evolved starting from the evolution of cannibalism on conspecifics.
