The Unusual Frogs of Chernobyl

The Silly Salamander Scientist by Talon Jost

Episode notes

On episode 1: I examine two papers about frogs in the Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone. Their incredibly quick evolution and a few of the possible methods and implications. I look at Car et al. 2022 for their general evolution. I then look at Burraco and Orizaola 2022 for the evolution of their rapid melanism.
