Welcome to 2012! You look like you need something to read:
- The always-thoughtful Marlene Zuk weighs in on the semantics of insect slavery.
- Ever had that eerie feeling you’re being followed by a dragonfly? Chris Goforth examines the science.
- Fireflies. Wow.
- Rob Dunn 0, Kangaroo 1
- Ed Yong’s best science reporting of 2011 contains a suspiciously high representation of insects.
- I’ve started uploading insect photographs from Australia. I’ll be blogging some of these here and over at Compound Eye, but in the meantime consider these a preview. Plenty more to come.
Also, we have a date and place for this year’s BugShot insect photography workshop: 23-26 August at the Archbold Biological Station in Florida. Full details & registration information will be posted by February; consider this a pre-announcement.
