New #OA paper out today in Fish and Fisheries 🐟: "A synthesis of (non‐)compliance theories with applications to small‐scale fisheries research and practice" w @EJMilnerGulland & Stefan Gelcich Link here: https://t.co/bmp9C2rrma @OxfordBiology @OxZooDept @ICCS_updates (thread)

When it comes to #conservation, you might think that policy-making is the end point. But what about when people don't comply with these policies? This paper by @r_oyanedel looks at non-compliance theories, with respect to small-scale #fisheries 🐟🎣 @OxfordBiology https://t.co/irVqCaWaoL

We'll be starting off tomorrow with "What's up with those clouds?", presented by @OxfordPhysics DPhil student @AndrewIWilliams😀 Because let's face it, in the UK, we're no stranger to a cloudy day 😛☁️🌤️ #clouds #cloudgazing 3/3 https://t.co/hcLVU8Fw1F

Thanks to @OxfordSparks for letting me talk about all the wonderful clouds I could see from my window during lockdown! There's even a time-lapse in there! Keep an eye out for the video, dropping soon :) https://t.co/o3u2MgNtyt

In some fish species, males do the majority of parental care, and a new research from @beccagoldber9 suggests why this may happen. Read more about the costs and benefits of paternal care in fish here: https://t.co/HDnOCCE1Ei @UniofOxford

We've teamed up with some amazing @UniofOxford researchers to tell you about some of the interesting stuff you can discover right on your doorstep 😀 We're calling these new videos - you guessed it - 'Lockdown Walks'! 2/3

⭐NEW SERIES!!⭐
Over the summer, it's likely you went on a fair few #lockdown #walks 🚶 In fact, you can probably do your local walk in your sleep by now (not advised). But did you know there's lots of fascinating #science to be uncovered on these walks? 1/3 https://t.co/ttob3KKNQf

Loving this new video from the @royalsociety 🌌⚛️🦏🎨💻⚽✏️ You might think, "I don't want to be a #scientist, so why study #science", but in actual fact, science can help with many careers, and even just in everyday life... #thinkcritically #becurious…

Back in May we were lucky enough to do a live interview with Dr Philipp Grünewald about our #energy use during #lockdown.

Now his research features in the @Forbes article:  "Why Working From Home Makes More Sense Than Ever: Lessons From The Lockdown" #WFH https://t.co/sSPCnyZwSm https://t.co/ZhMewozUdI

I can't thank @AcademicChatter enough for this tip! Zoom video call of my western blot while I went and had lunch without a single worry of it over running 😍 https://t.co/Y0IFyQh95u

This is genius - just had to share 😂 #labwork https://t.co/DsY5BZsPyZ

Has the exciting news this week about #phosphine on #Venus got you interested in all things #space? Check out @drbecky_'s latest video, where she chats about #planet migration! #solarsystem #Jupiter #Saturn @OxfordPhysics https://t.co/8oT5Pbk7ql

Seemed a timely one to share, as @geology_johnson has just become Dr Johnson!! Congratulations Brooke 🥳🎉🎈
