Hello, everyone!

I recently attended the American Elasmobranch Society conference, the
largest meeting of shark, skate and ray scientists in the world. We
live-tweeted the conference, sharing exciting new research from
presentations live via twitter. Each session's tweets are now Storify-ed,
formatted and organized in a way that people who aren't on twitter can
easily read.

Please look them over, share with interested colleagues, and let me know if
you have any questions!

If you're interested in learning more about the benefits of conference
live-tweeting as well as how to do it, please see my recent publication on
this issue here: (

Finally, I asked people following along to tell me a little about
themselves- check out the diversity of our audience!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
