Paper 23 had nice figs, readable prose, solid science, and for me, PhD nostalgia: "Going through the motions: incorporating movement analyses into disease research"
We study movement.
We study disease. Let’s do

Paper 25 was Frainer et al.'s "Parasitism and the Biodiversity-Functioning Relationship". Good, but…
This paper was not
'bout psite diversity
and function. I'm sad.#260papers #scihaiku https://t.co/QpHt4E7Ag0

Paper 31 of #260papers was a re-read of Lafferty 2011 in Bulletin of Marine Science.
"The naked fleshly larvae become prey." – KDL #sciquote
I should probably
reread all of K. Lafferty's
pubs every year. #scihaikuhttps://t.co/M7aHPatsmd

Paper 33 was Shaw & Hochberg 2001. Journal of Insect Cons. 😍
British psite wasps 🇬🇧🐝
are diverse and important;
we should conserve them.#260papers #scihaiku #savetheparasiteshttps://t.co/1w9pSDmB2P

perhaps people, too?#260papers #scihaikuhttps://t.co/e0oWx7roIG
