About winderjssc

I have a background in ecological studies in both the museum and the research laboratory. I'm passionate about the natural world right on my doorstep and enthusiastic about capturing what I see through photography, wanting to open the eyes of everyone to the beauty and fascination of nature. I am author of Jessica's Nature Blog [https://natureinfocus.wordpress.com]. I have also extensively researched macroscopic variations in oyster and other edible marine mollusc shells from archaeological excavations as a means of understanding past exploitation of marine shellfish resources. I am an archaeo-malacological consultant through Oysters etc. where I am publishing summaries of my shell research and other oyster related topics [Oysters etc. at https://oystersetcetera.wordpress.com]. Photographic Salmagundi [https://photosalmagundi.wordpress.com] is a showcase of photographs and digital art on all sorts of subjects - not just natural history. The profile picture is an old one - a blast from the past.
