Urban Scientist

Lecture art

At Oklahoma State-Stillwater, I met some great scientists doing the kind of research that will one way or another make it into my next book. One is Danielle Lee, postdoc and artistic note taker (see above) who authors Urban Scientist blog for Scientific American. Danielle is studying giant pouched rats in Tanzania, and how they are trained to sniff out landmines. Another colleague, Babu Fathepure, is showing how bacteria eat away the concrete bridge pylons in polluted rivers of a neighboring state (we won’t say which one). Thanks so much to Margaret Ewing and Karen McBee for hosting me here.

What kinds of microbiology or zoology (or even botany) do you think should make it into a book?
