Anyone who’s hung around the blogosphere long enough is familiar with the “View From Your Window” feature at Andrew Sullivan’s blog, in which readers send in photos of, well, exactly what it says on the tin. The result is a stream of posts showcasing the worldwide community gathered around Sullivan’s site, and it’s really quite lovely.
Well, you know what other blog has a worldwide audience that must surely include many a talented amateur photographer? The Molecular Ecologist! Okay, yes, we’re not exactly on the same level as the Daily Dish, but we’d love to see the diversity of molecular ecology through the eyes of the working scientists who read this blog.
So here’s the proposition: We’d like you, our readers, to send in your photos and images of molecular ecology in action—from the lab, from the field, and from the greenhouse. Photos of scientists at work or their favorite study organisms are what we’re mostly interested in, but we’d also love to see your very best data visualizations—the more colorful, creative, and informative, the better. We’ll post submissions to the blog and in a gallery on our Facebook page—and we’ll incorporate the very best ones into our rotating list of header images.
To submit, post a Creative Commons-licensed copy of the photo to Flickr with the tag MolecularEcologistView; or e-mail a high-resolution image to Jeremy. (This may seem obvious, but: By submitting a photo or image, you’re understood to be giving The Molecular Ecologist permission to post it to the blog and use it as a header image, and to make any modifications necessary to do so.)
We can’t wait to see what you’ll send in!
