Rarefaction curves and advanced mothematics .

Watch this space for any updates on if the rainforest moths we found were new to science!

Thanks to Rainforest Expeditions who organised our trip. https://www.rainforestexpeditions.com/

Full disclosure: we paid for our flights to Peru but Rainforest Expeditions provided our visit into the rainforest for free. We visited the Tambopata Research Center and the Refugio Amazonas lodges. If you’d like to visit via the method of exchanging money, check out their site or socials:

Read more about the research being done in the rainforest by Wired Amazon. They also take volunteers if you like doing science while being rained on. https://www.wiredamazon.com/

Huge thanks to my Patreon supporters. They bought me a Peru tourist t-shirt and a pair of socks with sloths on them. But the time we got out of the rainforest I had no clean clothes and had to buy a new outfit at the airport to be presentable enough to get on the plane home. https://www.patreon.com/standupmaths

Spoiler: In the next rainforest video I get stung by a bullet ant. But don’t tell anyone, it’s going to be a surprise. I know I was surprised. Downright shocked.
