One Week Left Until the Carnal Carnival: Taphonomy

View Images

The next edition of the Carnal Carnival – the monthly blog event focused on all things fascinatingly disgusting – is fast approaching.

On Friday, October 22nd I’ll be featuring a collection of posts on the science of what happens after the death of an organism, technically termed “taphonomy“, and I need your posts to make this edition a success. You can write something new, submit something old, or point out something relevant written by someone else, but please get your submissions to me by 10 AM (eastern time) on Friday the 22nd by commenting here or e-mailing me via evogeek AT gmail DOT com.
