Carnivalia: Evolution #26 and Scientia Pro Publica #36 are now online

Two great carnivals that have rounded up a bunch of excellent writing from the science blogoshpere for your reading pleasure this week – and they’re both hosted by graduate students! How great is that?


Start with the latest edition of the Carnival of Evolution, now online at The Thoughtful Animal. You’ll find quite a nice roundup of some good evolutionary writing.


Next, you’ll enjoy visiting the Scientia Pro Publica Carnival, the 36th edition of which went online yesterday at The Allotrope. Another nice collection of writings from a broader range of science in the public interest.

Note that I will be hosting the next edition of Scientia Pro Publica at Reconciliation Ecology, so please send me links to any good science posts that catch your eye, or submit them via the carnival’s automated submission form.


My blog’s strange phylogenetic origin in the Carnival of Evolution #20!


Skeptic Wonder has one of the more creative analytical takes on hosting a blog carnival I’ve ever seen – an actually phylogeny of the blog posts included in the carnival, based on sequence alignment of each blog post’s URL! I’m not sure about some of the results, however… check out where my post on the challenges of teaching evolution ended up in the above tree! How on earth did I end up paraphylizing (if that’s a word) Bjørn Østman’s blog?!

But, never mind that, this 20th edition of the Carnival of Evolution has plenty of good stuff to read, so head on over there in your spare moments. And pardon my tardiness in bringing this to your attention.
