At Buzz Hoot Roar, we’re always telling you about what researchers are doing. This year, we let the researchers speak for themselves. At this spring’s Entomological Society of America’s SEB meeting, researchers made their own sciart about their work and wrote about it in classic BHR (brief!) style. Read on for four of our favorites.
Also, special thanks to Matt Bertone (@Bertonemyia) for this great idea. To learn more about the North American Coastal Plain’s new biodiversity hot spot, check out Matt’s American Scientist work here.

This is totally awesome! We did something close to this at the SciComm Section booth during the 2015 Ecological Society of America meeting: https://advancingecocomm.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/esa100-sketchyourscience/. The step we forgot/overlooked that we will include this year was to ask people to actually write down what they were illustrating, which is what you’ve modeled so fabulously here.
