  1. Stephen Bocking (2012). Science, Salmon, and Sea Lice: Constructing Practice and Place in an Environmental Controversy. [REVIEW] Journal of the History of Biology 45 (4):681 - 716.
    Over the last three decades salmon aquaculture has become both a significant coastal industry and a focus of controversy regarding its environmental impacts. Both circumstances have also provoked a great deal of environmental research. This article examines one episode in the history of this research. The Broughton Archipelago is a region of islands and channels on the Pacific coast of Canada, densely populated with salmon farms. Beginning in 2001 this region attracted researchers from several institutions, who examined the ecology of (...)

  5. Stephen Bocking (1988). Alpheus Spring Packard and Cave Fauna in the Evolution Debate. Journal of the History of Biology 21 (3):425 - 456.
    Packard attempted to incorporate cave fauna into a general theory of evolution that would be consistent with the principle of recapitulation, and would have as the primary mechanism the inheritance of the effects of the environment. Beyond this, he also attempted to demonstrate that the evolution of cave fauna was consistent with progressive evolution. The use he made of comparative anatomy and embryology places him within the tradition of classical morphology that was dominant through much of the last half of (...)
