Just a quick post to relay some exciting news. I recently entered a number of my scientific paper reviews in the Science 3.0 #Bugs Blog Contest, which ran for the month of June, and just today found out that my post discussing the Fly Tree of Life project was chosen as the winning contribution!
My effort was but a single post, and there are a bunch of great entomological entrants that you should go and check out immediately. It’s great to see so many people interested in the science of insects and relaying their excitement via blogging. Thanks to the group over at Science 3.0 for running the contest and for the first place honours, and congratulations to all the entrants for their great work!
This month’s contest is centered around Dinosaurs, so be sure to watch for some spectacular posts on giants of the past! Also, check out the advertisement, featuring art work by the talented Torontonian, Glendon Mellow!
