M.S. candidate Brandon Davis and PhD candidate Alex Kumar recently published a manuscript in Ecosphere on March 18, 2019 titled "A camouflage conundrum: unexpected differences in winter coat color between sympatric species". Using a combination of field methods, they document and quantify snowshoe hare and weasel winter coat color, illustrating an interspecific polymorphic response in winter coloration among sympatric winter white snowshoe hares and winter brown weasels. They then hypothesize what forces drive the interspecific differences between snowshoe hare and weasel winter coloration, highlighting areas of focus for future seasonal coat color research.
