Welcome! This blog is called Monicalogues because my communication style is, well, a bit rambling. I love language, but using it well (and concisely) is a bit of a challenge. 

The blog was initially set up to:
• create a forum for communicating my PhD research (see Research tab) on community environmental groups, restoration and citizen science to a wide audience
• build a bridge between the biological sciences and social sciences, because the languages and philosophies differ
• enable reciprocity between myself and my research participants by creating a space for information sharing, feedback and discussion

Now as people+science, the site:
• provides summaries of key citizen science and environmental restoration workshops, seminars, conferences and events
• showcases community-led ecological restoration action and biodiversity conservation initiatives
• New Zealand and international citizen science projects and programmes
