The Carnival of Evolution for January is up at The EEB & Flow, a group blog about ecology and evolutionary biology. Some of the topics covered in this month’s posts are:
The Cambrian “explosion”! Was it as rapid as is claimed by some? Dinosaurs! Human evolution! Bat echolocation divergence! A potential new history of HIV’s relationship with human populations! And, of course, much, much more!
The next CoE, for February, will be hosted by… someone, I’m sure. Make sure you submit your evolution-themed blog posts [...]

Normally I’m not a fan of tracking back through the archives of blogs that I follow, but I’m prepared to make a big exception with The Panda’s Thumb, a group blog focused on evolutionary biology and its cultural and religious detractors. In a way it’s like Homologous Legs, except older, better and the people who write it know exactly what they’re talking about – PhDs in biology abound.
This gem of an article comes from way back in August of 2004, after Stephen C. Meyer published [...]

How and why is this news not being reported on every science blog in the blogosphere, least alone every blog in the blogosphere? I have absolutely no idea. No idea at all – because it deserves to be.
Fossil evidence of multicellular life has been discovered in rock formations dated to 2.1 billion years old.
Pardon my excessively mild swearing, but holy crap! 2.1 billion years ago? That’s approximately 1.5 billion years before the Cambrian “explosion” (more accurately referred to as the Cambrian radiation), when evolutionary processes that [...]

After I finished the DNA Predictions on Cornelius Hunter’s Darwin’s Predictions website, I felt something lacking in my life. It felt as if I had a large, Cornelius-shaped hole in my Internet experience. I was craving his wit, his sense of humour, his unique writing style that always had me coming back for more. Yes, I realised I was totally addicted to bass him. So, without wasting any time, expect perhaps spending quite a few hours at school and sleeping, I’ve come back to fulfil [...]
