Does plasticity always help organisms adapt? What happens if it doesn't? Could it speed up evolution?
Tune in to hear Art and Marty talk with evolutionary ecologist Cameron Ghalambor about the role of non-adaptive plasticity in evolution. Cam is a professor at Colorado State University who tackles these questions by studying guppies.
We interviewed Cam at a bar in Tampa, FL during a conference for the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology.
