My column is back! It’s in the Hindu Businessline’s BLink, and is on the natural history of all kinds of organisms. Here’s what’s been published so far in this second iteration:
September 2017: A piece on migrating loons, change, and death, in memory of Dr. Terry Wheeler.
October 2017: About asking scientific questions from within and outside science.
November 2017: A piece on how we know what we know in science, based on my work in lizard mating systems (and this old blogpost).
December 2017: A piece on parasites that take over the actions of their host, and looking for messy narratives instead of the seeming-perfection of adaptation.
January 2018: All about pelicans, as poetic and prosaic.
Looking forward to lots more writing! As always, I’d love feedback on old column pieces and suggestions for new ones!
