  • At Zooillogix Benny tells us about cuckoos that can change their cries and frogs that can selectively hear different sounds.
  • John Lynch just co-authored a great paper about the importance of the history of science to education. Head on over to Stranger Fruit to congratulate him and have a look (I’ll be blogging about this one soon, too).
  • John tackles the question of “If humans evolved, why are there still monkeys?” at Evolving Thoughts. Coincidentally I’m off to photograph some of our primate relations today so I’ll soon have some photos to compliment his excellent essay.
  • Geology can be a hazardous scientific discipline, especially when you end up surrounded by 30 hungry brown bears. Chris at Highly Allochthonous has the details.
