The BBC has been doing an excellent series on recent extinctions and the loss of biodiversity. This is a topic that engages my interest so tightly that I cannot just get up in the morning and toss off a blog entry about it. And it is another really important topic I've been meaning to blog.
They have a new piece up on amphibian extinctions, related to the Global Amphibian Assessment, which Meteor Blades blogged over at Kos. It is a topic my son and I work on together. Here is what I wrote about one of our projects last June.
