Marmots (and Researchers) in the News!

Several members of the marmot team were featured today on the web...congratulations to Dan, Tina, Julien, and I (Amanda) for our publication on "Heritable victimization and the benefits of agonistic relationships"!

The article was officially released today, and was accompanied by some news coverage. These short, snappy pieces provide a nice overview of the paper, as well as comments from other scientists in the field. Check out the links below (as well as my blog entry "Popularity contests") for some fun discussions of marmot relationships.

Read the original article:

And my personal favorite...posted on Wired in response to the Science News article:

"Wow, some researcher really wants to blame his parents for a sad high school experience. People probably made fun of you because you followed small rodents around writing about their social lives instead of focusing on your own."

The truth hurts :)
