The Unbalanced Ecologist is the nom de plume of Aaron M. Ellison, Senior Research Fellow in Ecology (retired as of July 2021) at Harvard University and an Associate of the Harvard Forest. This site gives free rein to his writings, artwork, and ideas about the interweaving of ecology, modernism, photography, woodworking, education, and bicycling.

Aaron is an ecological polymath
