In which I will be keeping track (for my own benefit) of my daily progress in the identification of the ant fauna of Tiputini Biodiversity Station in Ecuador, the analysis of that data, and the pursuit of my PhD. And (for the benefit of everyone else) I hope to provide helpful information on ants, taxonomy, database management, identification, and other assorted endeavors. Cheers
Nature this week has two articles highlighting science on The Simpsons. The first is an interview with executive producer Al Jean, the show's head writer and a Harvard mathematics graduate. The second is a list of the top ten science moments on the show. Fun, quick reading.
