How do we capture variation in metabolic rate within and among species? I am excited about our new Bioessays paper (led by Neil Metcalfe & Pat Monaghan) that examines this important question. This publication stems from the Rank Prize Symposium on "Variation in Metabolic Rate: where does it come from and does it matter?" in July 2022. I unfortunately contracted covid-19 on day 1 of the conference and spent its entirety attending virtually from my room. So I was thrilled to take part in the group effort to write this opinion piece! Thanks to my unfortunate buddy in covid quarantine, Amelie Crespel, with whom I worked on my section and one of the tables.

Guest edited special feature out now in BES journals Functional Ecology and Journal of Animal Ecology
After nearly 2 years, I am thrilled to see the cross-journal special feature in Functional Ecology and Journal of Animal Ecology that we guest-edited out now, focused on mechanisms and consequences of infection-induced phenotypes. Check out all of the amazing contributions here: https://besjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/toc/13652435/2023/37/4. The graphical abstract from our editorial included below!
