Some views on the biggest problems facing gender equality in STEM from several scientists in ecology and evolution.

A disturbing article on classroom sexual harassment and the fact that it can start before students enter university or college.

A tongue in cheek “field test for identifying appropriate sexual partners in academia”, but it makes several excellent points, especially the last four paragraphs.

The process of evolution is amazing and nature always finds a way…bacteria capable of metabolizing polyethylene terephthalate (a common type of plastic).

And finally, the perils of academic fashion sense.
