About 10 days remaining before the defense! I passed in a complete dissertation draft on Friday and now I’m plugging away at the defense presentation itself. I’ll be posting details about how to log in to the live-stream of the defense at the end of this week, but before that I want to share this story with you.
A friend of mine, Ben Goldfarb, spotted some Italian Wall Lizards near his parents’ house in Hastings-on-Hudson in New York. This is a previously undocumented population and Max and I quickly went out to visit in the hope that we could see and catch a few. We did!
Ben wrote about it on the Science blog “Last word on nothing.” It’s a great read so definitely head over there and take a look at the article.
