My research in southern Africa, with colleagues from Germany and San Deigo, on black rhincoeros scent communication is profiled here in the The Scorpion and the Frog blogspot.

The author, Sarah Jane Alger, is a graduate student in Zoology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where she is researching how the male birds song and female mate preferences are regulated.

Sarah’s is a diverse and interesting blogspot. Other graduate students will likely identify with its mix of graduate student experience and research.
