Twitter Web Client : Joseph W. Brown 'Fly tipping' was one of my first real language mysteries of UK. The closest analogue (in the US South, at least) is cow tipping en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cow_tippi… , and I was deeply disappointed when I learned that this meaning doesn't carry over to flies.

Twitter Web Client : Post-doc alert: We’re accepting applications for our TC Chamberlin post-doctoral fellowship. The fellowship is open to all researchers in earth, planetary and geophysical sciences. Paleo and Geobio applicants very welcome!

iPhone : Our latest paper, now within the newest Paleobiology issue: bit.ly/2r1gCvO. We test various theories about the accumulation of body shape variety in holostean and teleost fishes for the 1st 150myrs (60%) of their evolution. DM if you need access :) Main findings below:

Twitter Web Client : This Gould paper (onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…) is great reading, and has got some real gems--e.g., "Dangling a tape between skull and wall to measure the basal skull length often required a major effort in acrobatics--a skill that does not come naturally to me." #overlyhonestmethods

iPhone : This paper has it all! Phylogenetics, analytical chemistry, biogeography, herbivore and fungal susceptibility tests - Testing for latitudinal gradients in defense at the macroevolutionary scale in plants SSE onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ev…

Twitter Web Client : Finished paying off undergraduate student loans today!!
