Guilhem, Peter and Pierrick are all members of the TMB group. Their collaboration is another example of the kind of interdisciplinary work we do.
Very pleased to see this paper finally out. In this paper, Guilhem Doulcier, Peter Takacs, and I provide an analysis of the concept of fitness. I can hear some saying: "Yet, another paper on fitness?"
Congratulations to Dr Pierrick Bourrat - recipient of a prestigious ARC DECRA fellowship.
