Welcome to Threads in the Web.com – stories in natural history by Steve Daubert. A new tale from the wild appears here monthly. This month’s essay is “Tree Mice,” a tale about the evolution of powered flight in mammals. Each essay is followed by a notes section that describes the scientific basis for the narrative.
The site’s blog lists the new essays as they appear. It also lists the new commentaries, which focus on current topics in natural history. When you register with this site (on the blog page) you will be notified of the postings of new stories and commentaries, or you can leave your own commentaries.
Steve Daubert is a writer of short stories in all facets of natural history. Some of his previous stories have been compiled into books (the title of the first of which is paraphrased in the title of this web site). When Steve is scheduled to present a talk or read a story, the presentations link will contain the information.
