Evelyn Pielou Discussion Group - Katherine Drotos

Katherine Drotos will be leading this discussion. We all have "truisms" in our research, pieces of information, or definitions that we take for granted. Sometimes the simple act of looking for a good reference leads you down the citation rabbit hole (or fox hole, as the case may be) and you realize the situation isn't as clear as you thought. After reflecting on a chapter from Gould's "Bully for Brontosaurus" and examples from her own work, Katherine will discuss how to avoid these pitfalls and how researchers can prevent them in the future.
