Perspective articles are invited opinion pieces discussing a theme in wader/shorebird biology, ecology or conservation. Opinions expressed in these articles are not necessarily those of the Editors or of the International Wader Study Group.
It’s great to share new insights into the lives or waders/shorebirds in published papers but that’s only the first step when it comes to trying to make the most of your research. One of the tools available to authors is to write blogs that promote findings to fellow ‘waderologists’, to birdwatchers who help by sending in colour-ring sightings, to conservation scientists and sometimes to those who make decisions about site designations and international conservation policies. Graham Appleton, author of the WaderTales series of blogs, shares some thoughts about how to make the most of your blogging.
