  1. I enjoyed your first talk on Wednesday, but couldn’t stick around for your second talk. I just looked through your slides for it however and was wondering how you built that cool phylogram onto Google Maps? That is one of the coolest ways to present a tree I think I’ve ever seen! Awesome stuff!

      1. Huh, I hadn’t explored Mesquite that deeply, but now I’ll have to look into that! And yes, that’s a Xylomyiid that one of our undergrad workers found and I was able to stage in the lab.

      1. Nice, and a scholar, too. Not sure if he mentioned to you he went back to Florida to graduate and receive his Ph. D. on the 18th, on research not exactly about, but involving ants. Go figure!

  2. Alex,
    Very sorry to have missed the P. obscurithorax talk – I was waiting on a plane at the time. Good meeting otherwise, though.

    1. That’s a shame you weren’t able to make it, considering that your work on the sudden range expansion of the Pheidolewas what inspired that project in the first place.

  3. Alex,
    I was able to catch the Heterospilus talk, but not the Pheidole talk. I was reminded who it is that comes to these things when your joke about ‘finding a Heterospilus with all its antennal segments in tact is like finding a crane fly with all six legs!’ totally *killed*! 😉 Thanks for posting the Pheidole talk. And it was great to see you both.
