About this blog

On being asked what one could conclude as to the nature of the Creator from a study of his creation, Haldane is said to have answered, 'An inordinate fondness for beetles.'

I am posting to this blog to share my enthusiasm for the natural world - full of incredible diversity, and processes that tend to hide just out of site. I try to illustrate the methods of ecological research, and the surprises and beauty I run into in the field. I also occasionally post personal news that might be of interest to a broader community.
