I'm a herpetologist by training but a naturalist at heart. My masters thesis is looking into the Panamint alligator lizard, Elgaria panamintina. In particular I'm focusing on identifying its range and testing out a variety of novel techniques which may benefit the field of herpetology as a whole. I post things that interest me and often post updates on what I'm doing in the vertebrate museum, in the field, or in the lab.
Hello everyone. This has been a little project of mine over the past few days
I hope you all enjoy this listing, and share it around. Share all the science. :3
I will be editing this from time to time and I’ll keep a link to it on my blog so you can find it easily.
This is not meant to be a list of all science blogs on tumblr. Only all the ones I follow (which is still a lot but definitely not all). The blogs listed are all active as well (within the past few weeks).
If you are not on the list and want me to check out your blog, send me a message. I may or may not follow you
I categorized each blog by scientific field:
Anthropology, Astronomy, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Engineering/Technology, Environmental Science, General Science, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Medical, Paleontology, Physics and Zoology
The first post got too big, and I’ve had to split it into two posts.
Post #1 Contains the fields of Anthropology, Astronomy, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Engineering/Technology and Environmental Science.
This post contains General Science, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Medical, Paleontology, Physics and Zoology.
If you’re not happy with the section I put you in, send me a message and I’ll make an edit. I had to make quick decisions on hundreds of blogs, I’m only human.
Its a LONG post, so it might be easier to just search for the field you’re interested in.
With that said, enjoy!
Guys, the masterlist of STEM tumblr blogs is now split into TWO posts. That’s right we are officially too much awesome for Tumblr to handle all at once! Part one is the original post so it still has 2000+ notes, but Part TWO (this post) is a fresh little baby post so let’s make sure we get it circulating around just as much!
THIS IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT.
Lots of good science-related blogs to follow on this list.
ScienceDaily (Dec. 19, 2011) — In June 2011, a team of Chinese and Swedish researchers rediscovered the breeding area for the poorly known Blackthroat Luscinia obscura, in the Qinling mountains, Shaanxi province, north central China.
"The song is distinctive, and consists of rather short, quick, varied strophes that include both whistles and harsh notes. The strophes are delivered at a fairly slow, even pace. Several individuals were sound recorded in 2011, and two of these recordings are now made freely available. This will facilitate future surveys of this enigmatic bird species."

I’m headed out to go check on 36 hanging nest boxes… hopefully its not super windy or picking them out of the trees will be miserable. I will however remember to bring my camera so I can take some pictures of what is inside the boxes.
