I really enjoy reading ScienceBlogs. There are high quality science communicators over there. And I get to read current stuff in my field, and it’s a nice place to read some of the other fields too–with a lower barrier of entry than trying to read physics papers, for example.
But one thing I thought was missing was representation of plant science. So I wrote to them a while back requesting a plant science blog. Now, I’m not saying that tipped the balance, but I’m not afraid to ask for stuff I want :) And now there is one.
Pam Ronald–whose work I’ve written about before–is now one of the SciBlings! I’m just tickled. Her blog: Tomorrow’s Table, is moving over there. It’s still early, you can’t seem to get there from the front page of ScienceBlogs yet. But you know how moving to a new place goes….If you want to see some of her work as an introduction, you can watch the talk she gave at The Long Now recently.
I learned about this from Biofortified, another great place for plant science blogging. I also read Genetic Maize regularly. And every day I read agro.biodiver.se. Check ‘em out if you are a fan of plant science.
