Dieter Hochuli has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:
I head the insect ecology research group at the University of Sydney. Our work focuses on functional roles these animals play in nature and their use in the assessment and restoration of degraded ecosystems – which basically means I spend my time watching insects and spiders do stuff in the name of solving our great environmental crises. I started growing my hair as a joke for a school reunion and decided to keep it when I found out that it annoyed my balding and greying colleagues. As you can see, it’s also a handy tool for enhancing teaching evaluations.
