Ryder Diaz was the student who had my desk before me. He studied stem nesting bees and was even thoughtful enough to leave a few paper tubes (used to line the holes in “bee blocks,” in which these bees nest) in one of my desk drawers.
Ryder is no longer with us, but he has left behind a superb legacy of science communication for me to follow. Take this piece about carpenter bees, the largest of the stem nesters, that Ryder created. Beautiful and informative photos, not to mention the Jad Abumrad-worthy narration.
Best of luck on your current endeavors, Ryder! If you ever decide to come back I’ll be keeping your seat warm for you…
