Here There Be Dragons

"Grrr. I'm a dragon."
Happy Monday, folks! The first real week of 2015 brought forth a bevy of new articles bearing my byline. These included several news items plus a couple of features that I turned in last year.

First up, my latest "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

Next, three new wildlife/animals/poaching articles for TakePart:

This Remote Tribe Could Be Wiped Out for the Most Trivial of Reasons

And finally, two new engineering-related features for IEEE's The Institute:

That's it for this week. I expect to be just as busy in the coming days, so make sure to follow me on Twitter for headlines as they happen and come back here next Monday for another link compendium.
