Wordles seem to be a great way to get a visual idea of the concepts in written work. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is the wordle for the first 129 blogs here at EcoLincNZ. The size of each world is equivalent to the frequency of the use of that word in the blogs. ‘Species’, that essential unit of ecology and evolution, is the winer! It looks like a typical sentence would be: “A Lincoln University study has found that New Zealand native bird and plant species have different populations on islands.” Which is probably correct!
