While I’m on the subject of what to conserve and where, I’d like to introduce you to the world’s only other biodiversity conservation blog*, ConservationBytes. Corey Bradshaw is an associate professor at the University of Adelaide (and well-respected, well-published conservationist) and has been blogging for a few months now. He’s got a different style, a different perspective, and is in a different place in his career so I’m happy to say that we fill different niches in this blog ecosystem. He has a nice post up now about a recent paper discussing how and where to focus conservation efforts.
