Danielle Clode is a science writer, zoologist and researcher. Since completing her doctorate at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, she has been based in the Department of Zoology at the University of Melbourne. Continents of Curiosities: A Journey Through Natural History (CUP 2006) was inspired by the collections at Museum Victoria, where Danielle worked with curators as a scientific interpretor. She wrote Continents of Curiosities as the Thomas Ramsay Science and Humanities Fellow at the museum. Her first book, Killers in Eden (Allen and Unwin, 2001), investigated the remarkable history of co-operative hunting between killer whales and whalers on the New South Wales south coast. Killers in Eden has since been turned into an award winning ABC-TV documentary. She has also published a history of Victoria's Land Conservation Council, As If For A Thousand Years (VEAC 2006) and recently held a Creative Fellowship at the State Library of Victoria to study the publications of French naturalists in Australia at the turn of the 18th century. Voyages to the South Seas tells the story of these naturalists and has been published by Melbourne University Press as part of the Miegunyah Series. Danielle continues to combine her interest in scientific history with a diverse range of research, editing and teaching.
