Our recent paper in Nature Climate Change <http://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nclimate2656.html> was turned into an awesome video by Minute Physics. #scicomm  at its best.

I didn't think it would happen, but someone writing for "Slate" actually noticed all the accurate bird things in "A Birder's Guide to Everything" and gave me and Kenn Kauffman "top billing" for our work. #superproud 

Tomorrow, Nature is publishing a comment I wrote on how we incorporate climate change into conservation planning. Check out the link below (via paywall). Email me if you need a reprint. Happy to discuss further too.

Interesting blog post (with data I contributed to!) on job prospects for ecology PhDs

Over the years, I have entertained many friends with stories & videos of duck penises. This research is solely due to the brilliance of Patricia Brennan, who has been unfairly singled out by Fox News and conservatives as representative of why NSF should be de-funded (putting me and every other scientist out of business). Let's all celebrate the wonder of duck penises, and support funding basic science.

A beautifully written Op-Ed illustrating just now 'natural' or 'unnatural' dichotomous sexuality is.

Attention conservation biologists! There will be a 2-day workshop on conservation leadership for attendees of the ICCB conference this summer in Baltimore. Applications are now open. If you have colleagues or friends who would benefit from this workshop, please encourage them to apply.

Many of you may have heard yesterday about the huge cuts to the Field Museum's budget, much of which is going to mean cutting research. This is not a positive change. Please consider signing this petition.

This is the best commentary yet following Friday's tragedy. It expresses many of my strongest-felt concerns. It also confirms things I have witnessed myself, such as friends jumping to conclusions on social media, saying things they can't take back. It also reminds me that I wanted to post about the movie, "The Central Park Five," which is currently in theaters around the country. It is grim, but an incredibly important piece of cinema about tragedy, mass media, group-think, and real repercussions these things have on people's lives. Social media has only served to strengthen the voice yet dampen the penalty of the false accuser.

So, this is outrageous. Yes, there's a big difference between what legislators are considering and what becomes law, but this is purely anti-science and it's 100% the wrong way to prepare for future climate change impacts.
