With other bumble bee climate news this week, our new Molecular Ecology paper (congrats Jason and other team members!) will likely not make much stir, but here we have lots of genomic data looking at genome regions associated with temperature and precipitation! Some cool stuff that seems consistent with expectations. We'll have to wait for Sam's whole genome resequencing data to see what gets confirmed and narrow down some of the selection targets!
This will also be, I believe, the first use in the wild of our new B. vancouverensis name for B. bifarius (ignore that label in the poster figure below, it was made last summer!)
