I'll be participating in a panel discussion on crowd-funding on Thursday at 4 pm EST! You can join the G+ Hangout or follow live-streaming on YouTube. 
 
Scientists! What does it really take to run a successful crowdfunding campaign for your science? Recently, several scientists have written about their surprise on how their (successful) crowdfunding campaigns actually went. For these scientists, it wasn’t as easy as they expected. Do the expected rules of the crowdfunding road still apply? For this month's SciFund Voices, we’ll be speaking with a panel of experienced science crowdfunders who will share their experiences. We'll also be fielding questions from the audience, via Google+ and Twitter (use the #SciFund hashtag)!

Panelists
Dr. Jacquelyn Gill (University of Maine)
Dr. Ethan Perlstein (Perlstein Labs)
Dr. Lenny Teytelman (Protocols.io)
Dr. Jai Ranganathan, moderator (SciFund Challenge)
This Hangout On Air is hosted by SciFund Challenge. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Our crowd-funding campaign is $547 short of 50% funding, with two weeks left -- if we don't hit our goal, we don't get anything, so if you've been thinking about supporting our research on climate change and penguins, now's your chance!

My graduate students Dulcinea and Kit are trying to raise $10,000 to fund their graduate research in the Falkland Islands. Can you help us get there? Our research will help project the integrated ecologies and economies of this beautiful, remote biodiversity hotspot in the South Atlantic. Did I mention the penguins? There are penguins.

"Science’s spokesperson problem doesn’t start and end with Dawkins. If you look for the most popularly known scientists in the US, we’ve got Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye (the Science Guy) right at the top. I admire the work that Nye and Tyson have done to encourage interest in science, but I get frustrated when I see these two men called on over and over to be the public face of American science."

Horses are native to North America. It's time we stopped thinking of wild horses as invasive pests, and started celebrating them as a successful reintroduction. 
The horse has a complex and fascinating environmental history. Wild horses have become such an icon of the American west that it's easy to forget that humans introduced them to the continent five h...

Kew Gardens are an invaluable resource with a long legacy of scientific and cultural importance. I really hope these cuts can be avoided!
 
Yikes! Kew Gardens staff and science at risk.

I'm pleased to announce a new paper, now online for a June special edition of Conservation Biology. We use a paleoecological perspective to assess an emerging conservation strategy: protecting geophysical diversity (the stage) rather than species (the actors).

We've got 9 days left to raise $3974. If you haven't checked out the page recently, there are some cool new photography incentives, as well as the option to give in someone's name (and they get the incentives!). Please also share this with your communities -- we're excited about this research and are eager to get the word out to others.

Can you help us get to the Falklands to do some critically timed research on the impacts of abrupt climate change? Any gift helps!

It's finally time to name the lab, and we'd love your feedback! 
As we're finally designing my new lab website, we're finally down to the wire: we need a name. In naming my lab something other than "Gill Lab," my hope has been to think carefully about our identi...

Want to grow an ice sheet? Read my handy new post on orbital-scale climate change.
This is the second of a multi-part series on climate change at different timescales. The first part dealt with drivers on tectonic scales -- millions of years. This part deals with the primary driv...

Introduction
I'm a new assistant professor at the University of Maine, affiliated with the School of Biology and Ecology and the Climate Change Institute. I research the climate change, ecology and biogeography of the last 2.5 million years, to help inform the conservation the concerns of the next century. I care passionately about STEM diversity, interdisciplinary research, and public science literacy. I'm a geeky feminist who loves cooking, games and crafting at home, exploring the outdoors and abroad, and reading everywhere.
