In 1908, the U.S.S. Albatross set off on a research expedition to the newly acquired U.S. colony of the Philippines. Today, Kent Carpenter is studying the more than 80,000 fish samples collected by the Albatross to uncover how overfishing is actually changing fish genetics. Carpenter has been named an Outstanding Faculty member by The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. And: The Chukar Partridge is a common ground-bird found in parts of Asia and the western United States. Brandon Jackson believes this species is the key to understanding the evolutionary link between dinosaurs and birds. Later in the show: When a neighboring wind farm was endangering an entire population of bats at the Rose Guano Cave in Spring Valley, Nevada, Rick Sherwin helped come up with an ingenious system to protect them. Also: “Toad Day” is the one night that all toads in a single region mate, and biologist Jason Gibson celebrates it each year. Gibson also started HerpBlitz, an annual citizen scientist event to collect information on reptiles and amphibians.

Nudging seemed to be all the rage a few years ago - a way of changing individual behaviours to help people make better choices, about their diet, exercise and other habits. A lot of hype ensued, the UK government under Tony Blair even set up a “nudge unit” - but questions were asked about the efficacy of the approaches used, confusion about what a nudge actually was, and how to turn it into actual scalable change have followed the discipline. In this podcast Craig Fox, behavioural scientist at UCLA, and author of a new analysis “Details matter: predicting when nudging clinicians will succeed or fail” joins us to explain why he thinks nudging could work in medicine. https://www.bmj.com/content/370/bmj.m3256 To register for your free online place at BMJ Live 2020 visit https://live.bmj.com/
