Finally out in @PeerJLife our paper, born from an exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between zoologists and botanists. https://t.co/w18OitJwH4 #biodiversity #Biogeography #ConservationBiology https://t.co/WvB1necRoZ

An article I handled as editor has been published today [Thanks to the Reviewers who helped!] @PeerJLife https://t.co/mE5uvy6ruy #Biodiversity #ConservationBiology #Ecology #Zoology #NaturalResourceManagement Trends and biases in African large carnivore population assessments....

Super excited about our new paper on #herbicide impact on #seagrass in #SouthAfrica. Even low doses of #glyphosate affect seagrass fitness. With @ShallowWaterRes & funded by @NRF_News @thePeerJ thank you waiving OA fees https://t.co/z0ZfRRsJIL

A bit delayed, but happy a small little paper that was published this week on the predictability and transferability of local biodiversity environment relationships, combining local biodiversity surveys from across the world and remote sensing data https://t.co/WAfNBnRsML (1|4)

Hi people. I'm happy to share that my recent paper with @kenstoyama & @Luke_Mahler entitled 'A simple hierarchical model for heterogeneity in the evolutionary correlation on a phylogenetic tree' has now been published in @PeerJLife.

our #cheilostome work with Bjørn Kopperud & Scott Lidgard in @PeerJLife https://t.co/LI5pprRQzA #Biogeography #DataMiningandMachineLearning where we compared text-mined and @OBISNetwork and @GBIF data for a little studied but ubiquitous marine invert group @ERC_Research funded
