Definitely worth checking out this opinion piece in the NY Times bye Rob Dunn on “Discovering the Great Indoors”. It has a bit about Van Leeuwenhoek, and bits about fungi and lice and bacteria and tardigrades and foldscope and more. Rob Dunn is really one of the great pioneers of studies of the living organisms in the home and it is great to see something by him in the Times. And, if you want to get involved – check out the iNaturalist project he discusses.
