AOS presentation

I presented preliminary results from my study of genome-wide divergence in hybridizing and non-hybridizing Passerina at AOS 2018 in Tucson. I’m pretty excited about these plots, even though they seem boring–these buntings have been breaking all my hypotheses, but here they are matching predictions! Lazuli and Indigo buntings hybridize and also have the lowest overall Fst (from allopatric specimens). Varied and Painted buntings are sympatric but do not hybridize, and they are overall more divergent. The two Cyanocompsa species are completely allopatric and have the highest overall divergence. Stay tuned for Manhattan plots.
