Twitter versus Facebook: July 2016

Our Twitter and Facebook audiences don’t always agree on what they find interesting, but they both agreed that there was a problem in July.

An endangered species in Botany caught the attention of everyone in July.

Eric Boa, writing in the Conversation, raised the plight of plant taxonomists and how they are disappearing in some parts of the work. He also raised the question of whether any taxonomists in Biology are as valued as they should be.

Talking over undervalued individuals, Nigel Chaffey’s post on an unusual pollinator was the most popular entry on the blog this month.

Interesting stuff, but I don’t plan to let any snails near my favourite flowers any time soon.

Tomorrow, we turn to rap and consider our image.
