“Why are there so many insect species?” A video of a Darwin day lecture given in Feb 2018.
The PNAS article on Global temperature and biodiversity in the fossil record was recommended in F1000 prime. It also featured in Time Magazine, Nature, the Guardian, and PJM wrote a piece on it for The Conversation.
The Proceedings B paper on Global temperature and the fossil record went a bit ballistic. As well as receiving a congratulatory e-mail from Al Gore, alongside several from others wishing he would burn in hell, PJM was nominated (but not short-listed) for the Morgan Stanley Great Briton of 2007, under the Environment category (won by Tim Smit). The paper was the top science story on Google for a day, with over 270 web articles including the BBC, National Geographic and Scientific American. There was hard copy coverage in The Times, Guardian, Independent, Telegraph, Evening Standard and several other local papers in the UK, and featured in national newspapers worldwide. PJM gave interviews for BBC Breakfast TV, BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, as well as BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio York, LBC Radio London, The BBC World Service and Sky Radio. It also featured in the 9th edition of “Campbell’s Biology” text book (2010) and in Current Biology.
