A Blog for Naturalists

Corner of the Cabinet is a blog for naturalists dedicated to life science, earth science, astronomy, exploration, and the relationship between society and the environment.

The name references the cabinets of curiosity of the 16th century that served as precursors to our modern museums. Such cabinets were large rooms, often filled to brim with all manner of natural object from gemstones to animal specimens.

While natural history has evolved (pardon the pun) a lot since the 16th century, it remains fueled by the persistent curiosity of naturalists and their unique approach to the nature that melds the mind of a scientist with the heart of a poet.

This blog is an attempt to to bottle and share some of that spirit and I hope that you’ll find it a worthy complement to your exploration of the natural world.

Thank you for reading!
