Editor’s Selections: The Eve of Horses, Amusic Pitch Challenges, and Canine Parasites

Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, covering anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice. Follow her on Twitter @krystaldcosta.

Let’s get to it:

  • You may have heard of Mitochondrial Eve, but have you heard of the Ancestral Mare? At Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston walks readers through the story of a recent common ancestor of horses.
  • If you’re bad at music, you might also be bad at Chinese. A quick discussion at For the Ears explores why amusic people might have more difficulty with languages with small differences in pitch changes.
  • Those of you with strong stomachs, an appetite for the gruesome, and a high respect for cultural differences might want to visit Body Horrors, where Rebecca Kreston has a delightfully squirmish post about a canine parasite in Northwest Kenya.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.
