Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world.

New 3D scanning campaign will reveal 20,000 animals in stunning detail

Known as the "Fish Guy," Adam Summers earned his moniker for an odd hobby turned academic obsession: giving dead fish a computerized tomography, or CT, scan. The biomechanist at Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island, Washington, has been haphazardly scanning fluid-preserved collections of fish for 20 years—"I literally traded Snickers bars for CT scans when I started out," he says—to create detailed 3D representations of the animals and study the intricacies of their internal architecture. Whenever he posted the beautifully rendered skeletons online, fellow fish admirers would eagerly ask what was up next. Summers's half-joking reply: "Don't worry, they are all next. I am scanning all fishes."
