This is also a heads-up to all fans and followers that KAPOW! ECOLOGY comic strips will be posted much less frequently over the next six months as I leave the comforts of the office for a bunch of holidays and research trips to exotic tropical locations.

As we all know, the first thing to drop off the list when you get busy is reading new publications that are not directly relevant to your own research.

Check back here occasionally though as a few comics will probably pop up every now and again. Perhaps even a Kapow! In The Field mini-series. We’ll see. 

Cheers

How are you still here fire-sensitive conifer?


Now for the third instalment of The Fire Regime Delivery Truck. Old-mate Koala has his box of matches, he’s got Jimi cranked up to eleven, and this time he’s heading north to look at some real sensitive trees…..  Continue reading How are you still here fire-sensitive conifer?

BREAKING NEWS! Animals only respond to single disturbance


Election 2016 is heating up! The major parties are presenting some opposing policies (and one has finally released a policy for threatened species conservation), but are the voters really that bipolar? Surely they might respond, at least in part, to multiple policies across party lines….?   Continue reading BREAKING NEWS! Animals only respond to single disturbance

Exotic grass will only invade when a grassland is JUST RIGHT

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a surprisingly informative story about biological invasions. A little girl breaks into a house (invades if you will) and she would have just cleared off if only hot porridge and hard furniture were offered. But instead she found food and a bed that were just right….so she stuck around.   Continue reading Exotic grass will only invade when a grassland is JUST RIGHT

Anyone up for some good-ol-fashioned soul selling? Devil said he’ll make ya play guitar real goodContinue reading Woodland birds went down to the crossroads

Rewilding the devil: a movie review (SPOILERS)

Oh, how we have missed Margaret and David, sitting in their armchairs, giving every movie that hits our screens the what-for! Those 28 years of banter, all the disagreement, so many stars given or not given. When will we get another At The Movies? Continue reading Rewilding the devil: a movie review (SPOILERS)

Juiced-up ants hit ‘da club’ and snails approve!

Secondary Invasion Part 2 – Getting into ‘da’ Christmas Island Club is not an easy task for some. The bouncer says something about it being Shorty’s Birthday… or something. Either way, that rainforest is a pumpin’ crab party! Invaders can come a-knocking, but those crabs just keep a-rockin’….

BREAKING NEWS! Animals indifferent to invading shrub

The newsroom tends to overstate things at times to play at the emotion of the audience. From welcoming insect overloads to announcing a killer storm, this kind of language often misrepresents facts and feeds the population crap disguised as news. Bloody Murdock press am I right!

The INSECT INVADERS are coming!

Space Invaders – the 1978 arcade classic – can teach us a thing or two about Insect Invaders…..? Sure, why not! The space things (insect invaders) are trying to reach the bottom of the screen (enter the ecosystem). There’s different types (species). At the bottom there’s a gun thing (active management). And the longer it goes on the faster the space things get (an increasing problem overtime)…. Yep, analogy holds strong. Continue reading The INSECT INVADERS are coming!
