March Mammal Madness Special!
Show Notes

This month we are celebrating the 10th annual March Mammal Madness tournament! This fantastic and super fun initiative is a model for great science communication - and it was great to talk with founder Dr Katie Hinde and longtime participant Dr Alyson Brokaw about the history of the tournament and what makes it so special. Katie and I also talked about her other research projects - and we also have a great Paper in Focus this episode! Soil microbes and heavy metal accumulation in plants - fascinating stuff from Dr Priyanka Kushwaha. Link below!

Paper in Focus: Soil microbial community and abiotic soil properties influence Zn and Cd hyperaccumulation differently in Arabidopsis halleri
