RSB Director's Seminar: Does coevolution drive speciation in brood parasitic cuckoos?

Coevolution has long been thought to be an important driver of the evolution of new species. While many studies have provided elegant demonstrations of coevolution in natural systems, evidence that coevolution drives speciation is weaker. In our research, we combine microevolutionary and macroevolutionary approaches to test whether coevolution drives speciation in brood parasitic cuckoos.
