I'm curious to know how much reading y'all do outside of your field? I'm writing my thesis right now so naturally I read a lot of papers particular to my field (restoration ecology/ectomycorrhizae). I've been reading ecoevoblog lately and I see that multidisciplinary approaches to your science are really valued today. So I'm wondering how much effort other sci grads make to read papers that are a little outside of their field, for instance reading something having to do with cellular phys for me. Its a little daunting to try to read other field's literature because there are so many eccentricities about all the sub-sub disciplines that take some time to learn about and understand. I suppose New Scientist and secondary sources are good for this because they appeal to a broader audience and try to not barrage the reader with field specific terms.
Anyway before this gets tl/dr I'd like to hear some of y'alls thoughts on this.
