Please Don’t Tell me ’bout the News

We’ve been a bit lax with our blogging over the last couple of months, so following demands on twitter, here’s a short post with the latest news.

The headline news has to be: 


Of course, we don’t mean the kind of tree with branches and leaves, but the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution, where creative public engagement is featured in the latest Spotlight article. Hopefully, the article will motivate other researchers to do some fun public engagement activities!

The paper is already available as a preprint online here. The final version is scheduled to be published in February. It’s behind a paywall but you can email us for a reprint.
