The PhD journey involves boldly entering new and exciting territory, and discovering new techniques and methods of analysis. It also involves doing the same thing over and over again. This past week has involved more of the latter. Dissections, databasing and communication with colleagues—this week has had all three with abundance.

The above does not mean that the week was somewhat ho-hum. On the contrary, many of the dissections I made this week were on species and genera that I have little familiarity with, and it was great seeing the results and thinking about what it all means in the greater context.
