Thanks, Mike for our first EwA Monthly Links: They are very interesting links/news! 
I am looking forward to the next one, next month!

To all, and about the first link. I'll be at Doug Tallamy's talk this Wednesday (7-8:30pm  at the Harvard University Science Center).
Anyone who wants to join me, email me :-) We can go for a drink after or something too!

Cheers, - Claire
