Ecology blog roundup

Three recent posts that that I found interesting:

1) Ecologist’s footprints: Corey Bradshaw over at ConservationBytes has an interesting article about the ecological footprint of working ecologists.

2) Consumer power: Marcelino Fuentes at Biopolitical doubts Pavan Sukhdev’s recent nature article is right in stating that cooperates are predominantly responsible for overconsumption – he argues that the amount and type of produced goods is controlled by the demand and not vice versa. I’m swaying on that one, a topic made for long debates at any rate.

3) The sense of mathematical modeling: And finally, Joan E. Strassmann at Sociobiology complains about the “The trouble with theory”. An older post by Amy Hurford might be interesting in this context as well.
