Editor's Selections 6 Comments
By Krystal D'Costa

Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

Lots of good reads in the social sciences this week! Here are some of the best:

    • At Lawn Chair Anthropology, Zacharoo discusses dental similarities between Australopithecus anamensis and Nakalipithecus nakayamai, an ape from Kenya dating to nearly 10 million years ago.
    • At Memoirs of a Defective Brain, the Brain cleverly uses a science comic to answer the question about whether the physician Haynemann was a nostrum dealer. (Nostrum was essentially a quack formula sold at exorbitant prices.)
    • From the Lab Bench, Paige Brown documents a disappointing trip to the career office as a young scientist tries to fit a passion for writing into the scientific discipline.
    • Johnny Scallops is back at Chronicles of Zostera with a detailed post on how humans can influence changes to seagrass habitats which can then affect scallop populations, as well as the ecosystem overall.
    • And finally, The Primate Diaries in Exile visits Times Higher Education where Eric Michael Johnson considers what the mutual aid tendencies displayed by bonobos may suggest about our evolutionary history.

    I’ll be back next Thursday with more selections from the social sciences!

      Throughout this great pattern of things you’ll receive an A just for effort and hard work. Where you confused me was in the facts. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more correct in this article. Having said that, permit me inform you just what did deliver the results. The writing can be highly convincing which is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can easily notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am definitely not confident of how you seem to connect your points that help to make the actual final result. For now I shall subscribe to your issue but wish in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.
