About

The goal of this site is mutual education on ecological issues involving: vegetation ecology (especially forests), land management, climate and ecosystems, genetics and evolution, sustainability, and scientific research issues.  All knowledge levels are welcome here.  I’d very much like an international discussion–we live in a bubble here in North America.

The comment  policy: Please stick to the topic and have something defensible (and useful) to say, or don’t bother.   No exaggeration or wild speculation. Commenting automatically shuts off 30 days from date of article posting.

My background: I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Wildlife Management from Ohio State, and a PhD in Plant Biology from the University of California at Davis.  I’ve also got some background in molecular biology, genetics and paleoclimatology.  But I’m primarily a forest ecologist.

Write or call anytime if you’d like. I’m sometimes out of contact for stretches of time doing field work or travelling or getting lost. Like most of us I suppose. Send out bloodhounds after 6 months or so.

  1. I think you would get better feedback if you leave comments open on your posts — I can’t see any reason to cut them off after just a month, as it takes awhile for people to find them — I happened to see a comment at the RC thread on Briffa 2013, which lead me to your site, all new to me.


    “Fewer scientific problems are so often discussed yet so rarely decided
    by proofs, as whether climatic relations have changed over time.”
    — Joachim von Schouw, 1826.

  2. As a suggestion, you may want to change the name of your blog from “Ecologically Orientated” to “Ecologically Oriented” since “orientated’ is not a word and detracts from your message. Thanks for your posts.

    • I did that on purpose actually, just being in a weird mood the day I set the thing up. Just picked a slightly wrong blog name, grabbed a picture of the dog, and off I went.
