Notes from my experience breeding and studying a wide variety of different invertebrates.
Saturday, 3 January 2009
Over at The Ant Room Kari has dug up a video that I haven't seen for a long time about filling an ant nest with concrete and then excavating it. It's fascinating stuff, and is posted below as part of your intellectual five-a-day.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
