Les sciences participatives, une opportunité extraordinaire pour comprendre l’évolution de la biodiversité
BY JEAN-YVES PAQUET
@ VOL 4
ON NOV 24, 2016
Depuis toujours, les naturalistes collectent des informations sur la répartition des espèces vivantes. Récemment, la diffusion de nouveaux outils simples et efficaces, ainsi que la sensibilisation d’un large public, a permis d’accroître d’une manière exponentielle la disponibilité de l’information rassemblée sur la nature. Ces données, non plus simplement rassemblées par les experts, mais aussi dans certains cas par de simples citoyens, sont directement utilisables par les scientifiques qui tentent de comprendre comment et pourquoi la biodiversité évolue. Nous tenterons de faire percevoir les fantastiques opportunités offertes, notamment par Internet, mais aussi les limites de ces méthodes.

In this PechaKucha, Kristina highlights the importance of science behind conservation by telling the story of pollination decline and community efforts.
Celebrating the unlovable and the unseen
BY VICTORIA METCALF
@ VOL 37
ON SEP 19, 2018
Dr. Victoria Metcalf is a marine biologist, geneticist and science communicator committed to making a difference. She has made many trips to the Antarctic, researching environmental change impacts on Antarctic fish and shellfish. Victoria manages the Participatory Science Platform, where communities, educators and scientists receive funding to work together on locally meaningful projects. She finds this a highly rewarding role that matches her passion for engaging everyone with science. Victoria has also been a steadfast advocate for women in STEM.
She balances all of this with being a single mother to her eight-year-old daughter, and they especially enjoy exploration of the world around them together on bike and foot. Here, Victoria discusses charisma in the natural world, how it impacts our conservation decisions, and how we can use a different lens to see beauty and value in all living things. She explores how such a change in perspective might also affect how we value and celebrate the all too often hidden contributions of women in, and the diversity of, science.
