In their recent paper ‘The use of telomere length in ecology and evolutionary biology’, Horn et al. (2010) aim to alert ecologists to some of the pitfalls in telomere-length analysis and interpretation that have arisen in human studies. As is often the case, there can be hiccups when technologically demanding techniques are transferred across disciplines, so this is a laudable and useful thing to do.
