My Musings for 23 April 2017

Here are my recent musings on Nature’s Web of Life.

This series of blog posts contains sources for my musings, my research, and my preparation for my student seminars. I am happy to share with you.  If you find any of the articles interesting, I hope that you will offer your comments at the end of the list.

I am focusing this list of musings on trophic cascades and food webs which form the basis for energy flow within Nature. These references are being used to produce an essay on Nature’s energy flow.

My name is Bill Graham. As a Marine Biologist who has worked in the US and Mexico for 30 years, I am a student of Nature, a teacher, a researcher, and a nature photographer. Through my work, I have acquired an ever growing passion for how everything in Nature is connected. Today, I travel extensively contemplating about, writing about, and photographing Nature’s connections. I also work with conservation projects in the USA and Mexico and mentor talented youth.
