Show notes

For the first show of 2021 we are joined by herpetologist and evolutionary biologist, Dr Mark Scherz. We dive into the reasons why naming species is important for conservation, the idea of taxonomic inflation, the problem with habitat fragmentation, the concept of ecosystem functionality and what the hell we mean by DNA barcoding. That's just for the warm-up.
