Building the new science blogging network at Scientific American will take some time. But there are already seven blogs on the site, mostly written by Scientific American editors, writers and correspondents. One blog that is written by others – scientists and bloggers – is the Guest Blog that has been around for several years now.
Starting today, I will be in charge of the Guest Blog, and have invited a number of interesting people to contribute guest posts for it (Interested? Pitch me a story at: Bora@sciam.com).
The first contributor is Dr.Carin Bondar (Twitter) with a post about conservation – the dueling approaches to species preservation: saving one species at a time, or saving entire ecosystems and ecological communities. Carin reviews recent studies from both ‘schools’ and makes her own decision as to which approach makes more sense. Go read it here!
