“Giant clams that are more dependent on their symbionts - such a T. gigas - are much more likely to be vulnerable to climate change” @GuibertIsis highlights how #SIBER analysis can be used to identify conservation targets among keystone reef species

"Avoid showing equations" I was always told. But annotations can make eqs. vastly more accessible to your audience. I've made these manually for grants (L) and talks (R) with +++ feedback. Now there's a tool for adding text annotation to LaTeX expressions—very cool!
I’ve been using #AnnotatedEquations in my recent papers. I think it really adds to the readability and understanding of the math. Here are some examples. It uses #tikz in #latex. Let me know if you like it. Happy for any feedback. [GitHub link: next tweet] #AcademicChatter +

1/4: NEW PAPER: We look at variability in ostracod diversity in #hongkong against natural and anthropogenic stressors. Mud, Cu, and nutrients are major controlling factors. Diversity patterns differ from what I found previously in my coral work! So interesting! Thread below:
Wonderful collaboration with Yuanyuan Hong, Hokuto Iwatani, @paulharnik , Anne Chao, @joncybulski , Yuan Liu, Phoebe Yuefei Ruan, Xiangdong Li, @chihlinwei !! authors.elsevier.com/c/1eKMt… thanks a lot my friends for this fun work together :)
