I have opened a new blog, which will focus strictly on questions regarding biology and the environment.

The Blog is called The Microbial Octave.

Initial essays will be about invasive species and species diversity, but there will also be an interesting series of essays about man's impact on microbiota (microbes and bacteria) examining the fundamental and largely unseen changes in our environment due to chemical pollution.

The subject is poorly understood and few people seem to appreciate the extent to which the visible plants and animals we encounter are dependent on the microscopic life forms around us.

My essays will attempt to examine and explain what's happening to the underpinnings of our natural world in relatively plain, accessible language. I intend to try and make this blog educational, interesting, and fun to read.

Please share the link with your friends.
