Oikos' own jazzsinger

We are very proud to have our own jazzsinger in the Oikos Editorial Board. I'm talking about our Subject Editor Lonnie Aarssen, Queen University, Kingston Canada. When not holding the microphone in his hand, Lonnie is doing research within the field of Plant Ecology...

Ecologist interview: Colin Kremer

Sarcozona's last (?) ESA interview is up. She chats with Colin Kremer , a grad student in the Klausmeier-Litchman lab at Michigan State. It's an audiofile, and well worth a listen. It's wide-ranging, touching on everything from why the ESA meeting is awesome (which it...

Ecologist interview: Juliana Mulroy

Sarcozona resumes her series of interviews from last year's ESA Meeting (better late than never!) with a chat with plant population ecologist Julian Mulroy from the ESA Historical Records Committee.

The evolutionary equivalent of the Oikos blog

If you like the Oikos blog, especially my attempts to use philosophy to help think about ecology, you'll like the excellent Evolving Thoughts blog by philosopher John Wilkins, which takes the same approach to evolution. Recommended.

Ecologist interview: Jeremy Fox

Sarcozona's interview with yours truly now up . Thanks again to her for offering me the opportunity, it was flattering to be asked and fun to do. In the interview I reveal the ecology paper that most impressed me. Many folks who know me are likely to find my choice...

Oikos blog highlights

This blog's been going for a while now and has built up a lot of content. I've heard from a few folks who've found the blog fairly recently and like it a lot, but who don't have time to dig through all the old content. If that describes you, here are a few of my...

Video interviews: Jeremy Fox on the Oikos blog and the ESA meeting

Wiley did a couple of short (2 min.) video interviews with me at the ESA meeting; the videos are now online here and here . The first one is about the ESA meeting. In retrospect, if I'd known the video wouldn't be up until after the meeting, I'd have suggested...
