Jellyfish in Scotland
It seems that the effect of an unusually warm sea temperature is to create large numbers of giant jellyfish. I don't see how that could possibly get blown out of all proportion if the News of the World got hold of it. Instead here's a rather sedate piece from The Telegraph.
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.
