Deformed frogs, Asian unicorns and a sex-changing snail
Most of last week's publications appeared in Scientific American, where they hit on three fronts. First there was my usual three Extinction Countdown articles, which covered a wide range of endangered species:
Conservation's Holy Grail: "Asian Unicorn" Sighted in Vietnam
The Incredible Mr./Mrs. Limpet: The Endangered, Sex-Changing Sea Snail
Sunday Species Snapshot: Rothschild’s Giraffe
Then there was my latest article for the print magazine, which is a consolidation of two of my previous Extinction Countdown pieces:
An Endangered Species Act Success: California’s Santa Cruz Cypress
Finally, here's my first non-Extinction article for the SciAm website, a story I am glad that I had the opportunity to cover:
The Good and Bad News about Frog Abnormalities
This week's two other publications came from Mother Nature Network:
New York named America's most walkable city
Puerto Rico's famous bioluminescent lagoon stops glowing
Beyond that published work I have a ton on my plate, including several more articles for SciAm and MNN as well as my usual monthly feature for Today's Engineer and a new piece for Lion magazine. I also just signed the contract for what could be my biggest magazine assignment to date, but I probably won't be able to talk about that publicly for several months yet.
I don't know how many articles will appear online this week, what with the Thanksgiving holiday and all, but you can follow me on Twitter for links as they happen.
