Welcome to the Molecular Ecology podcasts!
Below you will find in-depth and interesting discussions about special articles and cutting edge-research that is published in the journal which you can download for free and listen to at your leisure. Molecular Ecology publishes papers that utilize molecular genetic techniques to address consequential questions in ecology, evolution, behaviour and conservation.
The recently published paper ‘Functional genomics of life history variation in a butterfly metapopulation’, applied powerful new genomic tools to a classic study system - the Granville Fritillary butterfly in the Åland islands. In this podcast and video three of the authors discuss their study and future directions for their research.

Issue 17:1 of Molecular Ecology was a Special Issue entitled "Evolutionary change in human-altered environments". The papers presented in this issue are a result of a global summit held at the Institute of the Environment ( UCLA) in 2007, which brought together both evolutionary scientists and policy-makers from around the world. The latest Molecular Ecology podcast features interviews with Tom Smith (UCLA) and Louis Bernatchez (Université Laval).[Interviewing journalist: John Whitfield]
