Four more years! A link to the species in EcoLincNZ

Yellow-eyed Penguin

EcoLincNZ has turned four. It just seems like yesterday that we discussed the use of blogs in our weekly ecology and evolution discussion group and decided that we should give it a go. It’s been 130 posts since the first one on the different meanings of ‘Gondwanan’ and we have covered a lot of areas, highlighting the incredible range of research being done by Lincoln University Ecology staff and students. Over this time most of the blogs have involved research on particular species. Finding blogs on specific species is a little difficult as our keywords are more for concepts than species. So for your benefit I have put together a list of which blogs are associated with particular species (with links to the blog entries!). Possums, penguins, butterflies & moths and spiders have the most entries. Take a look at your favourite species. Don’t thank me all at once!
