Join us, Christian and Ellen Weatherford, while we review your favorite species of animals and rate them out of ten in the categories of effectiveness, ingenuity and aesthetics. Transcripts can be found at justthezooofus.com 😊 Got a species you want us to review? Submit your animal friend to us at ellen@justthezooofus.com and when we review your animal we'll give you a shoutout 😊 Cover art by Mrs. Brainbow (Taylor Gordon-Wood)!
Profane, insane, and 100% primo science, Petri Dish is a no-BS podcast that explores the wildest subjects in modern science with clarity and evil joy. Hosted by Sean Allen, a Nanoparticle/Immunology Researcher, and Nathan Allen, his "screenwriter" brother, Petri Dish fuses hard science with a freewheeling and madcap conversational style. Cannabinoids, Plague, Cats, the dreaded Candiru, and the even more dreaded Covid-19: all these and more are dissected with intellect and irreverence, dropping every week. So reject ignorance. Join the Scientific Revolution. Join Petri Dish.
Teaching biology in the most profane way you've ever seen or heard
The Science of Birds is a lighthearted, guided exploration of bird biology. It's a fun resource for any birder or naturalist who wants to learn more about ornithology. Impress your birding friends at cocktail parties with all of your new bird knowledge! Hosted by Ivan Phillipsen.

Заросли—это подкаст о растениях, где ведущие Вика и Катя делятся своим опытом, отвечают на вопросы и обсуждают интересные новости и проекты по теме. Уникальность подкаста заключается в абсолютно противоположном подходе подруг к домашнему садоводству. Серьёзная Вика старается разобраться в фактах и научной стороне вопроса, а Катя, эмоциональная и страстная по своей натуре, полагается на интуицию, старается прочувствовать сердцем что нужно каждому её питомцу и даже не парится по поводу научных названий и уж тем более семей. Девушки живут в разных городах- Вика в тёплом Берлине, а Катя в прекрасном, но иногда хмуром Петербурге. Так что помимо подхода и темперамента отличаются ещё и климатические условия. Поэтому тема влияния окружающей среды на успехи ведущих с зелёными подопечными обязательна к обсуждению! Выпуски раз в 2 недели по пятницам.

We interview researchers working at the Institute of Infection and Global Health in Liverpool to find out what they've been getting up to
New understanding of human genetic variation pose significant scientific, social, ethical challenges. The application of such knowledge to the treatment of disease and to perceptions of community and individuality is developing rapidly in a diverse range of institutional and cultural contexts. The public talks organised by the Anthropology Department at UCL aim to foster interdisciplinary communication across the social and life sciences that can address and examine a topical set of theoretical issues brought about by the changing field of genetic science. The event includes talks from Rayna Rapp, Sergio Pena, Victor Penchaszadeh.For further information please contact Sahra Gibbon s.gibbon@ucl.ac.uk
Representational art - painting, cartoon film, etc makes myths appear real; with mythological creatures and objects often placed within familiar and naturalistic scenes. One of the myths is that of flying beings. Angels, putti, fairies and dragons are all shown as having wings and an otherwise naturalistic form that we recognise readily. Yet, are they able to fly? If not, why do we wish to suggest they have the same powers of flight as real flying animals?
Two Brad's stretch their scientific know how to breakdown fascinating scientific research from physics to biology. If they can make sense of it so can you. Plus, interesting, informal conversations with scientists, science communicators and journalists.
Cambridge For Kids has produced a number of historical podcasts aimed at children and adults who are looking to further their knowledge in all things history. Episodes are all under 10 minutes, packed full of information that is easy to understand and entertaining. Written and narrated by Cambridge based archaeologist Matthew John Brooks.
Plants produce the oxygen we breathe and the food we eat. By assimilating carbon dioxide, they dampen the current rise in carbon dioxide concentration and thereby global warming. To predict future changes, it is important to investigate how plants are affected by elevated carbon dioxide concentrations and by increased temperatures. Can enhanced plant growth counteract global warming or will global warming lead to the extinction of plant species? Can we offset our carbon emissions by planting trees or is it better to invest in new technologies for the production of biofuels? These and similar questions will be addressed in the lecture.
The 4th Memorial A. R. Jonckheere lecture at University College London, May 2009
A candid look at what goes on inside the world's most prestigious scientific journal. Dr. Henry Gee joined Nature in 1987 as a news reporter on a three month contract. Twenty-four years later, he's still there, and is now a senior member of the editorial team. The author of several books including Jacob's Ladder: The History of the Human Genome and The Science of Middle-earth, Dr Gee is one of the most influential people in world of science publishing.

Bringing you stories, news, fun facts, and more about whales, dolphins and porpoises.
Rewilding Earth podcast is produced by The Rewilding Institute. Our guests range from activists to scientists to wildlands stewards and policy makers with whom we discuss wilderness recovery, species reintroduction, wildlands connectivity, and important work on the ground to restore wild nature to as much of the Earth as possible. Rewilding's mission is to develop and promote the ideas and strategies to advance continental-scale conservation in North America and beyond, particularly the need for large carnivores and a permeable landscape for their movement, and to offer a bold, scientifically-credible, practically achievable, and hopeful vision for the future of wild Nature and human civilization.
The ‘species concept’ – the definition of what constitutes a distinct species – has been a headache for biologists for at least 70 years. Recent genetic studies in natural populations have led to a revolution in the understanding of biodiversity and speciation. Species are demonstrably continuous with subspecies and varieties in nature, and intermediates in the speciation process are all around us. I will illustrate my talk with examples such as butterflies, birds and even whales. Lecture given on 30 November 2006.
CSHL Press publishes monographs, technical manuals, handbooks, review volumes, conference proceedings, scholarly journals and videotapes. These examine important topics in molecular biology, genetics, development, virology, neurobiology, immunology and cancer biology. Manuscripts for books and for journal publication are invited from scientists world wide.
Join Lindsay and Sara as they nerd out about the biology in some of their favourite books, movies and tv shows.
Spring 2008 - UCL's Lunch Hour Lecture Series is an opportunity for anyone to sample the exceptional research work taking place at the university, in bite-size chunks. Speakers are drawn from across UCL and lectures frequently showcase new research and recent academic publications.
