Life’s rich tapestry: Alumni, careers and species

This blog was set up to provide information about the research that is done in the ecology area at Lincoln University. The aim was to allow teachers and secondary students the opportunity to see NZ research in action. Over the years we have added to our readership and I would like to welcome aboard the Lincoln University Alumni. While most of what we do still revolves around current research, EcoLincNZ now provides other sorts of information. For example, we recently had a careers in science event at the university. Someo f our recent alumni talked about their science jobs that they have been in since leaving Lincoln. You can see them here. We also use thuis blog as a teaching tool and some of the blogs written by our postgraduates will be featuring on the site soon. For those of you that are new to the blog finding articles on specific species is a little difficult as our keywords are more about concepts. So for your benefit I have updated a list of which blogs are associated with particular species (with links to the blog entries!). Take a look at your favourite species.
