Sites I am involved with:
NLNature.com – this is a Citizen Science website established by me, for people to post sightings and learn to ID plants and animals of the province.
OceanViewer.org – this is a “one-stop shop” for Ocean Data
statsR – this a Wiki page my students and I started to document their tips and tricks for learning and using R.
Sites visitors here might be interested in:
Biology Department main page – use this to find out more about what my awesome colleagues do, and figure out why you might want to come do a degree with us.
US-IALE – the US chapter of the International Association of Landscape Ecology is the main academic society I identify with. I’m currently on their executive.
Society for Conservation GIS – BEST low-budget association I’ve ever been involved with. Their LISTSERV alone is worth the price of joining.
Ecological Society of America – some good resources for students.
Sites I like or visit often:
The Globe and Mail – Canada’s National Newspaper
CBC Music – what I listen to at work
Bayern Radio – what I listed to at work when I want to keep up my German
Research Gate – it’s the Facebook for academics
Major League Baseball – my guilty pleasure is listening to the Jays on internet radio.
The Met Online – No, not the NY Mets (I’m a Jays fan…) The Metropolican Opera. Yes, I like opera AND baseball. Actually the two have a lot in common, I think.
So what’s so cool about Newfoundland and Labrador? (websites that will make you want to come here)
Offical Newfoundland and Labrador toursim website – your spot for pics of whales, icebergs and jellybean houses
City of St. John’s – everything you need to know about municipal affairs (except sidewalk snow clearing)
Ferryland Lighthouse – my fave spot on the entire island for a picnic lunch.
Terra Nova National Park – Gros Morne gets all the tourism attention, but this park is a sweet gem!
Wonderful World of Whiteway – we’ve stayed at these cottages. Amazing hosts, and I love Jerry’s blog. It captures the spirit of life “round the Bay” so well.
