2013 UCMP publications

Communicating science to both colleagues and the general public is an essential ingredient of the UCMP mission. Through journals, presentations at professional meetings, articles in the popular press, interviews, workshops, lectures, and even science cafés, members of the UCMP community share their research that ultimately contributes to a greater understanding of the history of life. This list of 2013 peer-reviewed articles represents a portion of that effort. UCMP alums are indicated by asterisks; † indicates a deceased alum.
