Welcome to the Z-letter

Image

Hello to all you new first year zoology students and welcome back to the rest of you!

For the newbies, the Z-letter’s basically an informal zoological forum run by Jonathan Codd, the zoology director and a load of enthusiastic, intelligent, charming and good looking postdocs and PhD students (who write the articles).

 Feel free to post, comment, discuss and maybe learn something! Just sign up to our twitter alerts and get involved:  

 Just search for Z-letter or @JonathanCodd

P.S. Don’t worry, no-one’s getting marked on this stuff so don’t be shy.
