Hi all,

Some practical advice on how to effectively reduce your personal carbon emissions (hint: it’s not just replacing your light bulbs) can be found in a new paper by Wynes and Nicholas.

Another good read, but on the effects of extreme climate events on shift in breeding time of wild passerine.

When you submit your paper to Functional Ecology, you may want to think a few moments longer about choosing an appropriate title. A very nice analysis by executive editor Charles Fox and Sean Burns shows the evolution of titles in Functional Ecology, and highlights some indicators for a title to be appealing to editors and reviewers, and to attract more citations.

Enjoy your week,
