Things of Curiosity



 

    I have a great interest in what was once called "natural history."  This refers primarily to things of the natural world: biology, geology and less so, chemistry and physics.  The term has fallen into disfavor, what with the advent of the rigorous quantitative sciences we see today, which looks down upon this field which elicits visions of naturalists who putter about in the field with their butterfly nets and collecting bottles.   Whatever...I have had my training in the quantitative sciences, but I still love the old-time naturalists.

     As time goes on, I'll be adding various observations, but the below sites can be an introduction to the amazing variation of the natural world.
