How comparative is your research? 2011 update

This week has been good. I had a new paper officially accepted and a preprint go up on Monday. Today I discovered another new paper had moved from “in press” to “published.” That journal, The Journal of Crustacean Biology, doesn’t “do” preprints, which means I’ve had two new papers hit in one week. Perhaps more importantly...

The bragging list of how many different species I’ve published papers on can be updated!

  1. Spiny sand crabs, Blepharipoda occidentalis (Paper)
  2. Pearly sand crabs, Lepidopa californica (Paper)
  3. Mole crabs, Emerita analoga (Paper)
  4. Squat lobster, Munida quadrispina (Paper)
  5. Signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus (Paper)
  6. Cricket, Teleogryllus oceanicus (Paper)
  7. Yabby, Cherax destructor (Paper)
  8. Balmain bugs, Ibacus peronii (Paper)
  9. Slipper lobsters, Ibacus alticrenatus (Paper)
  10. Spanner crab, Ranina ranina (Paper)
  11. Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus (Paper)
  12. Sea squirt, Ascidia interrupta (Paper)
  13. Marmorkrebs, Procambarus fallax f. virginalis (Paper)
  14. Louisiana red swamp crayfish, Procambarus clarkii (Paper)
  15. Grass shrimp, Palaemonetes sp. (Paper)
  16. White shrimp, Litopaneaus setiferus (Paper)
  17. Benedict’s sand crab, Lepidopa benedicti (Paper; pictured above)
  18. Tapeworm, Polypocephalus sp. (Paper)
  19. Nematode, Hysterothylacium sp.(Paper)

Will have “stories behind the papers” posts on these soon! Bedtime for me.
