DTF's Christmas Research Redux

In this peri-celebratory season things will be a little quiet here due to other commitments, so I thought I would bring back a few of my favourite research posts from the year.  Since this blog was effectively launched early in 2010, you might not have seen some of the earlier ones.  So here they are, I hope you enjoy them:

What’s a manta do?  A discussion of the surprising discovery that one of the worlds largest ocean-dwelling species is not “one” after all, but “three” (species, that is)

Slow down = Mow down?  The most viewed post of the year on DeepTypeFlow (>30K hits); a discussion of Ed Gerstein’s research on hearing abilities of manatees and the implications for boating in Florida

Your calamari wants a flat screen. A startling discovery that octopus can see hi-def TV, but not regular TV.  Bloody techno-snobs…

The Ocean conveyor running AMOC.  Two contradictory studies show the complexity of the global climate system and the role that the ocean plays therein.

When can we stop sampling and have a beer?  (Predictably?) one of my favourite topics - species accumulation curves and what they tell us about biology and about how to sample it.

When errors detract from the message, who is to blame?  A cranky rant about an especially shoddy bit of scientific editing.

To see the world in a grain of sand: movement from a turtle hatchling’s perspective.  An exploration of work out of Daniel Goldman’s lab at Georgia Tech regarding the suprisingly versatile turtle hatchling
