About John

Bio

I am 23 years old and I currently study Biology at the University of Waterloo, ON. I have a great fascination with biological systems and the immense orginizational structure they possess. Plant development particularly interests me primarily due to the versatility of cell fate and the importance of that extrinsic information has on the morphogenesis of a particular cell line. As I continued my studies I grew a huge interest in how organisms interact with eachother and how entire ecological systems interact. I am currently interested in pursuing a field in ecotoxicology or something related to the plant science/agriculture.

I agree with some of what you are saying but I do not at all agree with the your certainty that aliens do exist. The fact is, we simply don't know. we can predict that there is the possibility of life as us humans on earth, are a living example that life can exist on planets if the conditions are favourable.

Biases in 6th mass extinction event?
This is a link to a non published paper and addresses some biases of the fossil record but does not address the role these biases have on our interpretation of previous mass extinction rates. http://www.asa3.org/ASA/resources/Miller.html

yea I see how you use other tools such as isotope analysis in dating and I am not sure but I guess you could use that information to figure out climate variability through-out time. However, the issue is still there, this carbon dating you speak of will tell us nothing about which species are going extinct it would just give us information about climatic variables which could support findings of species declining if complimented with fossil record findings.

Thank you for your response, I really appreciate you took the time to read my views. No I have not, I will check him out! I just haven't heard much on this topic what so ever. Thanks!

Innovative studying methods?
I watched this talk a while ago and it really showed me how by simply organizing data in a visual way your brain can process this information more efficiently than just reading texts, simply because the information now has a new meaning to you. http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/david_mccandless_the_beauty_of_data_visualization.html
