    FE: Ken Thompson & Jurene Kemp: Daisies that close at night use colour to hide from herbivores

    FE: Ken Thompson & Jurene Kemp: Daisies that close at night use colour to hide from herbivores

    "It seems that both groups are picking the flowers when they're feeding - they're walking about and you can see them pick flower after flower after flower after flower."

    In this podcast, Jurene Kemp talks about her paper, Cryptic petal coloration decreases floral apparency and herbivory in nocturnally closing daisies - recently shortlisted for Functional Ecology's Haldane Prize.

    FE Ken Thompson & Hal Halvorson: algae, fungi and leaf decomposition

    FE Ken Thompson & Hal Halvorson: algae, fungi and leaf decomposition

    "Breaking down leaves is basically hard work, so if the fungi have the option of an easier life, they take it?"

    Why - and how - do algae slow the rate of leaf decomposition in aquatic ecosystems? In this podcast, Ken Thompson interviews Hal Halvorson about his paper "Periphytic algae decouple fungal activity from leaf litter decomposition via negative priming", recently shortlisted for Functional Ecology's Haldane prize.

    With some exceptions, universities rarely teach STEM undergrads how to communicate science to a general audience. This is our initial step towards undergrad science education and teaching them how to communicate science to a wider audience.

Good content, but I would recommend not recording audio with a ti84 calculator.

I would love to see more frequent updates. These are well done and sorely needed. Ecology as a science is poorly represented among podcasts.
