CoE 36 is up

At Greg Laden's blog.

This month there are several posts by researchers at BEACON, which is the place that I work at myself at Michigan State. One of those is by a postdoc, Kevin Theis, who works on the microbial communities in the anal pouch of spotted hyenas. The bacteria in those pouches produce scents that the hyenas use for communication. Kevin is investigating if the bacteria and the hyena are coevolving.
