We're less than a month away from the end of the year (the decade, even). In past years, I've done a review of the year, where I select my favourite posts. But those were more innocent and less productive times. This year, I have written 245 posts and counting and it's now easy to narrow these down to a manageable number.

So I thought I could get you to do it, and we could have some in the process

Throughout December, I will be getting you lovely readers to vote for the top stories covered on this blog over the last year. I've selected the ones that have interested me the most and divided them into 8 groups, each focusing on a different field of science. Today: animal behaviour (well, sort of - one of them arguably involves no actual behaviour)

Top two posts in each category make it to the final selection. Throughout the process, you can suggest stories that you think I may have missed in the comments. Between Christmas and New Year, I'll put up a final poll including some of these suggestions and some cool stragglers published in December, leading up to the final list on the 31st.

So for today, here's your selection. Click on the links to refresh your memories and then vote in the box below.

What's your favourite zoology/animal behaviour story of the year?
