There are certain scientific disciplines that are well represented in the blogosphere. Bioinformatics comes to mind. As does physics. But these are computer savvy people who probably spend quite a bit of time hooked up to the interwebs. How about scientists that need to get their hands dirty? Like ecologists.
Does anyone know of any good blogs by ecologists about ecology? Not conservation or environmentalism, but ecology. Like population dynamics, landscapes, nutrient cycling, predator-prey interaction. I’ve got a couple in mind, but I want to hear your suggestions.
And if you’re an ecology blogger, post a link in the comments and you’ll be added to the blogroll. Provided you blog about ecology and not just environmentalism/conservation.
That’s not to say that ecologists aren’t computer savvy. Some of the best statisticians I know are ecologists, and modern applied statistics requires a fair bit of computational work. But empirical ecology requires field work, and these folks don’t sit in front of the computer like bioinformaticians and theoretical physicists.
