violin plot of body conditionCongrats to Kathryn and her co-authors for their recent pulbication in Ecology and Evolution "Sympatry leads to reduced body condition in chickadees that occasionally hybridize". Kathryn reports an interesting pattern of reduced body condition in black-capped and mountain chickadees that co-occur and discusses potential drivers (e.g., crytpic hybridization, range edge effects, competition). Stay tuned for more from Kathryn in the coming months as her other thesis chapters are published. Congrats Kathryn!
