I'm doing my bit for the internet with this low-quality video of a jumping spider doing a poo. ENJOY.

Having reached the heady heights of our 50th episode, we managed to get the fantastic David Quammen on our podcast! David is an incredible science writer who has authored books on topics including viruses, evolution, and Darwin; he also writes for magazines such as National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Harper's... not only that, but he is amazingly nice and interesting and funny! So, you should definitely check out this episode...

You can find the second part here: https://plus.google.com/104991113639562905445/posts/AW3t6EB23tW

Is this the feeding station near stirling? Was thinking of going and just wondered what the setup is like?

The newest episode of +Breaking Bio Podcast features researcher Magdalena Sorger telling us about weird career moves and studying ants across the globe! Be prepared for tales of exploding ants, trapjaw ants, and more... and check out her website http://theantlife.com/ for videos and amazing macro photography from her stints in places like Borneo, Costa Rica, Ethiopia...

A quick post on the excitement of finding fungus on honeymoon, and a rubbish attempt to make a David Attenborough meme...
I am continuing to make extremely slow progress in sorting through the thousands of photos that I took in Borneo over the summer, but thought I would highlight something I found on a walk in Danum ...

Evolutionary biologist
Introduction
I am an evolutionary biologist, with interests in sexual selection, life history evolution, individual variation in behaviour, and evolutionary genetics. I am currently based at the University of Exeter's Penryn campus. You can find more information and blog posts at my website: http://tomhouslay.com

I am also interested in statistics and data visualisation, and co-teach a 5-day residential workshop in statistical modelling for ecologists and evolutionary biologists using the R scripting language: http://prstatistics.co.uk/courses/advancing-in-r/index.html

I co-host a science podcast called 'Breaking Bio'.

I also take photographs of wildlife and post them at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomhouslay or https://500px.com/tomhouslay
