Hello everyone! I'm a student at Indiana University studying biology. I'm especially interested in evolution. I'm also somewhat of an amateur astronomer, and if you couldn't tell by my name and signature I'm a huge Sagan fan. I thought this forum would be a good way to keep my mind on biology when I'm not studying and hopefully I'll learn a little something as well.

Just so I have at least one post to my name.
Just started something that, in time, should result in a BSc in biology at the Open University. Just wanted to find a place where I can find/read and occasionally discuss things/subjects about biology, specifically evolution and bees...I am sucker for bees...honey actually...but they make it...so you got to like them a bit. (Even thinking of starting my own bee colony...for the honey. )
Well who knows I will be able to contribute something close to worth while in the future...for now I will just lurk a bit around the forum.
And now you may pat yourself on the back for making the through my first post.

Well though I do have an interest in microbiology/biology i'm still extremely new to the vast world of biology and by registering on this forum I hope that I can also learn much more about biology from all of you!
interests: mostly everything about bioligy
At the moment i'm studying environment and ressource management, but i'm thinking about starting to study enviroment biology this summer instead, to get more nature science in to my education.
Education: Studying at the university. If everything works out fine, I'll be a BSc. soon.
Interest: I must admit I cannot write sth really extraordinary in here, for I guess I'm a rather casual girl: I listen to a lot of music, I like mountainbiking (I'm however not half as sporty as I'd like to be ), just enjoy nice weather and being with people I love. In general I like discussions and trying a form a more or less substantiated opinion on things. I like to unterstand. Oh, and I like birds
Aaaand... since it's fun, here's a picture of the town where I study... http://www7.pic-upload.de/16.05.12/vbs758wwmpl4.jpg
I love spring and summer, when everything's green!
Why I'm here? There are a couple of reasons.
Honestly I got a bit depressed and frustrated at the most online forums I've been involved in, for... many reasons. Losing somehow my belief in a basic intelligence of people when it comes to discussing things and opinions. That’s not supposed to imply that I perceive myself as perfect (I’m far from that) but at least I try to be respectful and understand, which sometimes gets difficult, when it’s not mutual.
And I'm tired of that. I'm tired of grown-ups acting like complete fools or just behaving like angry old bitter men to compensate.. whatever, I don't know.
Well - when I read over most of the topics here, I got really attached to the.. well, climate here, the way people talk to each other, as if everyone knew that another human being is sitting at the other end. Maybe I'll be proven wrong... but I hope not.
Maybe I can learn one thing or another, just increase my knowledge about all sort of biology things. And of course I hope I can improve my language a bit. So feel free to correct my language, grammar etc. whenever sth is wrong.
Hope that wasn't too much for the beginning. Just guess it's sort of nice to know who's there.
Well, I hope for the best and prepare for the worst
Please feel free to correct my language if any mistake occurs - I'd really like to improve my language skills :)
