Every Post is a Comeback Post

So I had originally intended to have a mini-blitz of material posted during Shark Week involving some of the topics that slip under the Shark Week radar, but for some reason technical difficulties arose that prevented me from successfully posting.  Also, in the middle of…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…

As those of you who follow me on Twitter have probably already noticed, this week I’m at the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, an annual meeting of fish and reptile researchers that includes the American Elasmobranch Society.  It’s a great way to meet up…

SciREN Press and Sharks in Coastwatch

A couple quick updates about things that have really slowed down my posting, but have definitely been worth it. First off, SciREN was a great time.  It was awesome meeting all the teachers interested in bringing marine and coastal science into their classrooms, and also…

AES 2013: Day 4

Today was the fourth and last day of presentations for this year’s AES.  The real shark week ended with a bang, featuring this year’s only concurrent pair of shark sessions.  As a result, I definitely missed some talks I wanted to see in order to…

AES 2013: Day 3

Day 3 of AES included pretty much all the talks up for the Gruber award, an award given to the best student presentation.  Holy crap there were some good talks today.  My talk was among them, and having seen my competition, I will gracefully concede…
