I’m Tom and I am currently undertaking my dissertation studying Zoology.
I have a wide interest in biodiversity, and would much like to incorporate that into a future career, so I see this blog as a major stepping stone in that regard. Also, I think that this blog will be a great opportunity to undertake in wildlife surveying, another field I am interested in following.
For my dissertation, I am hoping to undertake bird surveys across campus and two other similar sized areas of woodland around Reading – Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve in Earley and the High Wood near Bulmershe – in order to see if Whiteknights campus has a large bird species richness compared to other wooded areas, and therefore comment to see if the Whiteknights wood is a good ecosystem or habitat. I hope to post my results from the bird surveys on here, and also some blog entries about the interesting or unusual bird species which I find on campus or around Reading.
Furthermore, I will hope to be researching which blogging style is most received by readers of the blog, depending on the language used in the blog entries. Therefore I will be posting two blogs which have the same content, but in two different blogging styles, in order to analyse which one is most well received by readers.
I hope you find my blog interesting!
