Predator perspective drives geographic variation in frequency-dependent polymorphism

A big congratulations to Ph.D. student Iris Holmes and former undergrad Maggie Grundler for a new paper about how predators generate "geographic mosaics" in color polymorphism across space - no need to invoke complex selection scenarios to get neighboring populations with very different complements of color morphs!
