Research Blogging

I've just registered at Research Blogging.org, the initiative by Dave Munger to aggregate academic blog posts about peer- reviewed research. I started using the Research Blogging icon some time ago (and resumed using it on yesterday's post), but have only just gotten round to registering with the site, as I've been busy for past few months with exams. Now that they're over, I've got more time for serious blogging.

As of now, every post on this blog displaying the icon will appear on the front page of Research Blogging, and in the Biology category. The Research Blogging site is very useful for finding blog posts about research in a wide variety of disciplines, including the humanities and physical sciences.
