Lobulated ears: natural selection gone bionic?

About Robin and the Honey Badger

Robin

Far from being a mere featherhead, Robin is a mainstream scientist operating at the centre of current environmental concerns. His work has three main components: primary academic research, environmental consulting, and entrepreneurship. He has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers and book chapters in the fields of ecology and soil science. Robin’s light and curious mind achieves an avian mobility among the many fields of biological knowledge, making surprising connections and delighting in new perspectives.

The Honey Badger

Restlessly digging beneath the surface, the Honey Badger is in constant search for the honey of a more fulfilling biology that mines the common ground of apparently separate fields of academia. Performing research on several continents and across a broad spectrum of organisms from microbes to megaherbivores, the Honey Badger is the primary author of 35 peer-reviewed scientific papers and book chapters in zoology, botany, biogeography, and nutrition. An ecological theorist whose emphasis is on intercontinental comparison and original synthesis and integration, the Honey Badger has also published semi-popular articles on various biological topics in several wildlife magazines.
