Bad genes, red tides, ocean science and comics
This week's first article links come your way from the pages of Scientific American, where my Extinction Countdown series appears three times a week:
Desperately Seeking Cichlid: Fish Species Down to Last 3 Males, No Known Females
What Do Tigers and Kiwi Have in Common? The Answer Lies in Their Genes
Deadly Snakes, Ugly Critters, Leonardo DiCaprio and Other Links from the Brink
You can download the PDF here.
And finally, here are four new articles for Mother Nature Network:
Bill Gates 2.0: From Microsoft founder to disease eradicator
'Crazy ants' invade southeastern U.S.
Sequester forces cuts in volcano monitoring
Monsanto wins Supreme Court case on GMO soybean seeds
In addition to this week's articles, I made a rare public appearance at the Maine Comic Arts Festival in Portland, where I was selling my handmade comics and original art. What a great time! It was nice to hear so many people laughing at my work. I spend so much time writing about dark and depressing subjects, it's nice to get back to the humorous side of things once in a while!
Well, that's it for this week. I have a lot more in process and pending publication. Stay tuned for the latest updates!
