Grad students, when you hear that you should be “independent” you might think that means you can’t ask for help. Quite the opposite. Independent does not mean alone. Independent means taking ownership to think critically, recognize when you need help, and seek it out.

Has anyone found a way for postdoc fellows to get support during ? This is one idea, I've heard of others, I'm talking to folks locally, but haven't heard any "Yes, this worked for me" examples but may have missed them.

Not bad when your first bat of the survey is a new record for the country! Meet Kerivoula argentata. A new record for Rwanda and Nyungwe National Park!

Hi, I'm a male greater sac-winged bat. I have a fanny pack built into my wing that I stuff spit, pee, and genital secretions into. Then I hover near females and spritz them with that musky cologne. Scientists call this "salting."   🦇 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 🦇 (Pics Karin Schneeberger)

In October, I applied for a grant from for 3 years of PhD funding. Reviewers should be looking over applications now, but because of the shutdown "all panels, including virtual are cancelled." I & thousands of others may now lose out on graduate funding

I’m always amazed by how freaking much it takes for people to get out and protest in this country. We should all be flooding DC and demanding for the government to reopen.

I have wanted to share this video for a long time and it seems the right moment while planning fieldwork to Dominican Republic and Trinidad! This movie shows perfectly and beautifully how 🦇 pollinate flowers while feeding 1/3

Our preprint of Mammalia-wide evolution -- announcing a new tree of life for 5911 species based on a single DNA matrix and fossil node- and tip-dating. We show how ecology (vagility, latitude, diurnality) best explains living diversity & speciation rates.

Broader impacts on scientists and science described in this article. NONE OF THIS IS OK.
