About Robin Hopkins
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Robin Hopkins contributed a whooping 67 entries.
Cheers to Ben Goulet-Scott and co-author Austin Garner for their new paper out in Evolution, a cautionary tale of how morphological intermediacy isn’t always a reliable indicator of hybrid origin. Check it out here!
