Zac MacDonald makes cover of Evolutionary Applications

The article authored by postdoc Zac MacDonald concludes that ecologically mediated selection is contributing to variation within forest tent caterpillars (M. disstria), and that divergent adaptation related to both environmental conditions and host association should be considered in ongoing research and management of this important forest pest.
