OPEN-SOURCE PAPER AND STORY OF THE MONTH

Every month I’ll post an exciting open-source paper related to marine ecology. I’ll also post a work of speculative fiction to keep the creative juices flowing….

And the paper and story for June 2018 are:

When is dispersal for dispersal? Unifying marine and terrestrial perspectives by Burgess et al.
An interesting look at my favorite topic of dispersal, co-authored by researchers from my favorite marine station, Friday Harbor Labs.

Seven Birthdays by Ken Liu
I totally thought I knew where this story was going, but boy was I wrong! By the end the inside of my brain felt like an Escher drawing.
