I’ve been busy this back half of 2016, doing the field work for the well-monitored experimental release of the new biocontrol agent on Christmas Island, and haven’t gotten around to updating my pages with either a research blog or a comic….. Now I don’t have to because Matteo Farinella has nailed it. Great Christmas present…..
Christmas is upon us and I realised that I have been so busy this year (between my new research project and my new books) that I didn’t have time to draw any short stories, which have always been my favourite format. So, when I learnt about the troubles of Christmas Island on the new Planet Earth (and later discovered that the story is even more complicated) I decided that it was time for a little personal project. This short comic is the result, it’s inspired by science – because of course it is – but I hope it can also be read as fiction and enjoyed regardless of the science. However, if you do want to know more of the biology here is all all the info you need. Happy holidays!
