The latest carnivalia is now available for you to enjoy;
Carnival of the Blue, issue #18. This blog carnival focuses on marine life.
Carnival of Economics, 14 October 2008 edition. This carnival included something I wrote — about birds! To read what birds can teach us about human economics, along with mountains of other interesting essays about economics, you have to read this blog carnival.
The blogosphere’s answer to Friday Cat Blogging is the Friday Ark, a collection of links to images of animals and animals only.
And the most recent edition of the Carnival of Travelers, November edition — just in time to give me some last minute-pointers for my upcoming trip to Helsinki, Finland! Oh, and there’s other essays there too, so be sure to go there to read about (and help plan) other people’s travels.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.
