Biodiversity Heritage Library
This blog is written by staff writers who come from a consortium 14 of major natural history museum libraries, botanical libraries, and research institutions around the world. These institutions have joined forces to form the Biodiversity Heritage Library, a digital library providing open free access to digitized texts from the taxonomic corpus. Participating libraries include Harvard's University's Ernst Mayr Library, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and the California Academy of Sciences, just to name a few. They have over two million volumes of biodiversity literature, collected over 200 years to support the work of scientists, researchers, and students in their home institutions and throughout the world.

Grouper Luna
This is a blog about sexy groupers going on a honeymoon. The honeymoon, a reef fish spawning aggregation, is one of the most breathtaking shows in nature. Once a year, most reef fishes aggregate at only a few sites of the reef to spawn. Spawning is linked to the moon cycle. Hundreds to thousands of fish (depending on the species) swim in a synchronized ballet  under a moonlit ocean, until males and females spawn en masse, releasing the next generation of baby fish into the ocean currents. Worldwide, 80 % of known reef fish spawning aggregations are overfished, and 20 % of them have been fished to extinction. This blog focuses on research and conservation of reef fish spawning aggregations, specially those of large-bodied groupers. Other topics on marine conservation will also be explained.

Living Alongside Wildlife
The title of this blog, Living Alongside Wildlife, is a reference to a land ethic suggesting human and wildlife populations can coexist if we respect our natural resources. Our goals should include living alongside wildlife in perpetuity, rather than unsustainable exploitation, wanton killing and irreversible destruction of their habitats. For more about conservation and land ethics, check out the work of Aldo Leopold, particularly A Sand County Almanac. These essays were a great influence in formulating my own stances on various environmental issues. When I created this blog I had two primary goals. The first of which was to encourage an appreciation for wildlife that tend to have a bad reputation, primarily amphibians and reptiles. The second goal was to make my research accessible to a general audience. Over time, a third goal manifested itself. Many are generally unfamiliar with the natural history of reptiles; as a result there are a plethora of e-mail forwards containing outlandish stories and photos of these animals. All too often, these e-mails are circulated and accepted as fact. For animals that are already maligned, scary and fabricated stories only serve to perpetuate the myth they are dangerous and malevolent. Perhaps this is no more true than in the case of the giant dead rattlesnakes, wherein a dead rattlesnake is shoved towards the camera and a bogus story is made up about how various townsfolk were saved in the nick of time by the marauding monster. I use this blog to discuss these e-mail forwards, which I\'m often able to debunk based solely on the biology of the organism in question.
