Mohamed Shebl’s graceful shot of a Palestine Sunbird scoring some nectar from an Echinops flower was chosen as the overall winner for this year’s BMC Ecology image competition. In this Q&A we find out the “story behind the image”.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, choosing just 15 images to highlight from the over 87,000 articles the BMC series has published over the last 15 years proved a difficult task. So, as we continue our 15th anniversary celebrations, we hope you will indulge us as we look back on 15 more memorable images from the past 15 years.

This is a guest blog by Professor Hinrich Schulenburg of Kiel University, head of the Department of Evolutionary Ecology and Genetics and member of the research focus ‘Kiel Life Science’. His group, together with members of the International Max-Planck Research School for Evolutionary Biology, today published an article in BMC Ecology on the ecology of nematodes that comes up with previously unknown insights into the lifestyle of these seemingly very well-known worms.
