Hello everyone,

I just published my coverage of a fascinating genomic analysis that reveals
that the Carolina parakeet disappeared suddenly and abruptly, without any
genetic signatures associated with a dwindling or endangered population,
and thus this species’ extinction is very likely solely attributable to
people.

I hope you find my coverage of this study to be both educational and
interesting. Feel free to share widely with your family, friends and
colleagues, especially those who love birds, and don't forget to hare on
social media (facebook, etc.) and on twitter.

Happy holidaze,
