About Richard Dixon
I hold a BSc in ecological resource management and a PhD in comparative vertebrate endocrinology. After a few years as a science and medical editor and writer, I've spent most of my career as a general sub-editor/copy editor on national newspapers, including a decade at a very senior level. I am particularly interested in trying to keep up to date with advances in ecology and evolution, as I have particular concerns about the dangers of pseudoscientific climate change denial and creationism going unchallenged. Whatever I post here here will be in a personal capacity.
