About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing.

Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

      I’m starting to feel concerned about Monsanto as a potential trigger for war. As I learned (and blogged) yesterday, Japan and South Korea have suddenly decided to stop buying US wheat. The effect on world commodity prices remains to be seen.
