Grace Fulton published a scientific paper. Graham Fulton
Many young children love exploring nature and have the inquisitorial minds that make the best scientists. Few, however, get to have their name on a peer-reviewed paper, and it seems likely Grace Fulton has set a record by doing so at the age of six. Although her father is her co-author, he is keen to stress Grace's authorship is not simply for show, she's played an important part at several stages of the research.
Graham Fulton is an ornithologist at the University of Queensland. His research includes how well owls adapt to urban environments. “Grace absolutely adores owls,” Graham said in a statement . “She was only four when she started spending nights with me in the rainforest searching for them, and now she knows all of their calls."
For his most recent research, Graham compared the presence of owls at a Brisbane park with the nearby Mount Glorious rainforest. He told IFLScience that “[Grace] attended fieldwork on all occasions and always [attended] school the next day. She was in Prep at that stage. She could read the data and tell which owl was most common both on the data (excel sheet) and from being at the fieldwork. She could recall the moments I forgot.”
“She asks questions that inspire research, looks at the data, never stops learning, corrects me when I mark down the wrong bird,” Graham added, so when the work was published in Pacific Conservation Biology , both Fultons were listed as authors.
The authors found a near absence of owls in the suburbs, aside from one southern boobook outside the study itself. Meanwhile, five species of owls demonstrate the health of the rainforest site.
“We think that city parks must be linked to larger forests where the owls breed. They then enter the parks looking for food sporadically,” Graham said.
There is no Guinness World Record for the youngest published scientist. However, when Sophia Spencer co-authored a study on social media and the love of science , she was widely reported as being the youngest author of a published scientific paper. As far as we can determine, no one challenged this claim so it seems likely Grace has now broken the record by more than a year.
Grace is also the lead author of a paper currently undergoing review, in which she recorded a bird nesting in a previously unrecorded type of environment. Grace has expressed an intention to eventually become a butterfly researcher, despite her father telling her, “They're just bird food.”
The Fultons are crowdfunding to go to North Queensland once the lockdown ends to extend into new territory a study on aggression in honeyeaters Graham has been conducting for 29 years.

Guinness alert: Five-year-old is world’s youngest person (female) to publish a book
Titled 'the lost cat', bella’s book tells the tale of snowy, a cat who gets lost after venturing outside alone at night.
Guinness World Records has announced its youngest publisher who is all of five years and 211 days. Bella J Dark from Weymouth, UK has become the world’s youngest person to publish a book (female). Her book The Lost Cat tells the tale of Snowy, a cat who gets lost after venturing outside alone at night.
The book was published on January 31, 2022 by Ginger Fyre Press and has since sold over 1,000 copies.
Interestingly, Bella has broken the record of Dorothy Straight, born on May 25, 1958, who was just six years old when her book How the World Began was published by Pantheon Books in August 1964, reported the Guinness site.
Bella told the records site she got the idea of the book from one of her drawings. “It started off as a picture. My daddy said I could make a book and a story came from the picture.”
Her mother, 27-year-old Chelsie Syme, told Guinness that Bella has always had a great imagination and has been writing short stories “from as young as three”.
Bella spent “about five days” writing the entire story. She also illustrated the book by herself (with the exception of one picture at the end drawn by older sister Lacie May).
Bella hopes her book will “teach children not to go outside on their own at night time”.
Notably, for any book to be eligible for the Guinness World Records title, it must be published by a commercial publishing house and at least 1,000 copies must be printed and sold.
Bella also took inspiration from books such as What the Ladybird Heard , Splat the Cat and Diary of a Wimpy Kid .
The Guinness site also shares the youngest person to publish a book (male) is Thanuwana Serasinghe (Sri Lanka) who was fours years and 356 days old when his book Junk Food was released on January 5, 2017.

Perth boy Rehan Somaweera has become one of Australia's youngest authors of a scientific paper
A father and son bonding over their love for snorkeling has lead to 10-year-old Rehan Somaweera becoming one of the youngest people in Australia to author a published scientific paper.
- Rehan Somaweera discovered an interesting unknown fact about the WA common octopus
- He and his dad confirmed the discovery by recording what they saw across four different reefs
- His findings were published in a CSIRO journal and he now dreams of being a scientist
Whenever the sun is shining, Rehan and his dad Ru put on their wetsuits and flippers and jump in the sparkling blue water at Perth's Mettams Pool.
It was on one of these underwater adventures that year five student Rehan fell hook, line and sinker for the West Australian common octopus because of its "weird skin" and eight tentacles.
"When I saw the octopus it hooked me in because it looked like a creature from a different planet," he said.
With a now-piqued interest in the WA common octopus, Rehan noticed the species was often hanging out with the brown-spotted wrasse fish.
"I thought it could be by coincidence, but it wasn't, it was actually following it," he said.
His dad Ru, who studies animal behaviour for a living, did not believe the discovery at first.
A keen snorkler, Mr Somaweera said he had never noticed those two creatures together.
But his son was right, so the pair spent the next year watching and recording what they saw across four different reefs in Perth.
Unique marine discovery
What they discovered is known as nuclear-follower behaviour, which itself is not new, but Mr Somaweera, a behavioural ecologist, said it was not known among these two creatures.
Rehan discovered the brown-spotted wrasse follows the octopus around as it uses its tentacles to forage for food, making it easier for the fish to also score a feed.
"We know that certain animals that disturb the flow when they're feeding, creates feeding opportunities for other animals," Mr Somaweera said.
For example, that could be an octopus sticking its tentacle in a crevice and flushing out food for the fish to eat.
In the words of Rehan — it's lazy but clever.
With all the data the pair were collecting on their snorkeling trips, they wrote a scientific paper that has now been published in a CSIRO journal.
At just 10, Rehan is one of the youngest Australians to have done so, behind at least one other — Brisbane girl Grace Fulton who researched owls from the age of four and later published a paper.
"Getting something in a well-received, international journal as your first ever publication when you're 10-years-old, I think that's a big hit," Mr Somaweera said.
"It's not a massive research project but what was important, or what was exciting about this, is getting a child involved in actual research."
Having had a taste of science, Rehan now dreams of being a scientist in the future.
"Of course I do!" he said.
Dad's Sri Lankan upbringing inspires
Mr Somaweera, who grew up in Sri Lanka, said he didn't spend much of his childhood in the water because it was tricky getting from the middle of the island to the coast.
"It was a childhood dream that never came true, so when we started living close to the ocean here, I made sure that I enjoy it, but I also give the opportunity for my kids to enjoy that," he said.
"It's a window to another world ... the underwater world is amazing."
He said being able to share his passion of marine life with his children by not only telling them about it, but showing them, created a special bond.
"I'm a huge believer of getting kids out there and I'm starting from my own two kids," Mr Somaweera said.
"So for them to have that eye to detail and also question certain things...[it] made me really proud."
