Long time ago

I was in Namibia and explored the Nature of Africa the first time. Now I made a small collection of Pictures. Maybe I will add the blog about this adventure but for now, you can find the pictures here.

A because we want to have something else to learn and explore I added a small R Code for calculating a Linear Model with and making the plot afterward.

As always I hope you enjoy the stuff.

Hey we make progress

Today I present a new site in the Picture section. I think this web page starting to get a frame and a content, that a few people enjoy.

The New page is about pictures of an individual organism of all kingdoms, reflecting the biodiversity everyone can explore by just going out. Sometimes leaving his comfort zone, make a big difference and give nice insights and I think everybody would agree to that.

So I hope you enjoy the new pictures.

R is coming

As you maybe know, I am a biologist (Who am I?). Thus I work with different programs, a program that is amazingly adaptively to any of your requirements is R. I think I have discovered it far too late during my studies and I think every student in the STEM fields should start as early as possible with learning this program and the language. You can do almost everything in this coding language even without knowing it well. And if a topic is not present in R up to now there will be somebody that is currently evolving a package.

If my enthusiastic writing does not convince you just have a look on google and some related web pages Google Search. Or Just start on this page discovering R.

And by the way, I added some new/old pictures here and here (I am still figuring out how to present them well, should I add text? additional information? any ideas contact me)

Who am I?

I am a Biologist and have studied at a German University, and this is a kind of Homepage where I want to share some stuff including pictures, information and also some small R codes.

I am not a professional photograph, but after time spending in nature taking pictures of different situations, I don’t want to leave them on my hard drive.

I want to share them and like if somebody like them, too. But my intention is not that you spend your time in front of your screen. Moreover, I want you exploring the nature. You don’t have to go to faraway places to discover the nature. Sometimes the old plants of the neighbor or „dirty“ gardens or areas nearby are an excellent place to explore.  Just go out and spend some time searching for insects or nice small worlds. Only if you spend time outside you can make great outside experiences. Even if you look at the common boring plants, you will find a new world.

It is not always about knowing what you look at but teaching the eye to explore the small differences and details, because if you recognize them, you can differentiate things (or species in a biological context). Learning about these differences comes semi-automatically and if you want to find out more about that just go to the determining part of this page and start exploring.

Wer bin ich und was möchte ich

Ich bin Biologe und habe an einer deutschen Hochschule studiert und ich bin weder professioneller Fotograf noch denke ich, dass meine Erfahrungen ausreichen um mich auch nur Fotograf zu nennen. Aber nach einigen Jahren in der Natur wandeln und fotografieren in den unterschiedlichsten Lebenssituation bin ich es leid das meine Fotos auf irgendeinem digitalen Speichermedium vergammeln.
