Rae Wynn-Grant, PhD @RaeWynnGrantI’m out here preaching that bear conservation is tied to racism and meanwhile @cschell_canids is out here in ✨big media✨ suggesting coyote ecology is linked to racism. It’s a movement folks, get on board 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 magazine.washington.edu/feature/ecolog…
This is a GREAT profile and anything mixing ecology/evolution with a social justice lens is my eternal nonfiction #MSWL
Katie Rocci @ecology_katieVery cool article in Nature Ecology and Evolution that shows that our science is influenced by social norms and is thus not as objective as we'd like to think.
An alternative hypothesis for the evolution of same-sex sexual behaviour in animals
#MSWL I’d love to represent a nonfiction book on this topic
Sarah Kaplan @sarahkaplan48OH at @NMNH: A dad asks his toddler if she’s excited to see the big dinosaurs.
Little girl: I want to see the small dinosaurs
Dad: the small ones?
Little girl: They need people to like them too.
#MSWL Nonfiction about SMALL dinosaurs
Sarah Olson @ReadMoreScienceI read a lot of popular science books.
Authorship of science nonfiction has a serious diversity problem.
Are you a woman and/or POC and/or LGBTQIA+ individual who loves STEM?
WRITE A BOOK. DO IT. PLEASE.
I will do my best to keep up with reviewing and sharing them! 📚🔬
#MSWL I really want to see nonfiction popular science book proposals by authors from underrepresented groups in my inbox!
NYT Science @NYTScience“I’m 81 years old, and I’ve been a zoologist since my 20s. My whole concept of the animal kingdom would crash with this ctenophores-first idea." nyti.ms/2yDBU5V
This is EXACTLY my nonfiction #MSWL
Books about evolution and weird animals? Yes, please
Anand Giridharadas @AnandWritesThe 30,000-foot book is a genre that tries to turn mansplaining into literature.
Should it exist?
This tweet and linked article—my nonfiction #MSWL is the OPPOSITE of these “30,000 foot books”
