A new edition of the Carnival of Evolution is online over at The Atavism. Highlights of the monthly roundup of online writing on all things relating to descent with modification include John Wilkins on evolutionary novelty, Anne Buchanan on disgusting evolutionary storytelling, and Bjørn Østman on Michael Behe. Also represented: recent work from this very blog, by Noah Reid and Sarah Hird. Go check it out!
Biologist Jon Wilkins, author of Lost in Transcription and the webcomic Darwin Eats Cake, gives us a nice welcome to the blogosphere, and reminded me that the gang at Darwin Eats Cake took on the Dobzhansky quote behind our name …
Jon also addressed the origins of the epigram in some detail, which is an interesting read.
Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.
Nothing in Biology Makes Sense is an experiment in collaborative online science communication. Our contributors include working biologists at all career stages, studying organisms from viruses to birds, and in contexts from human medicine to tropical forests. Here, we’ll write about science that catches our interest, and try to explain why we think it’s cool, or why we think it’s crazy. With any luck, we’ll learn from each other in the process. Join us in the comments and on our Facebook page, as we make sense of the living world together.
