COVER In winter, snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus) molt from brown to white coats to maintain camouflage in snow-covered environments. This seasonal adaptation has evolved in several animal species and can result in camouflage mismatch as snow duration decreases. The Gordon Research Conference on Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics will be held from 14 to 19 July 2019 in Manchester, New Hampshire. See page 758 for the Gordon Research Conference schedule and preliminary programs.
