Check out Kate Wing’s post on a recent paper in Nature discussing how fishing destabilizes fish populations, making them more variable and unpredictable. Not only is it a super-cool finding, but the first author on the Nature paper is my brilliant classmate Christian Anderson, who is only in his third year of grad school. First author on a Nature paper before he even qualifies! I’m all verklempt.
