  • Eric Johnson over at The Primate Diaries blasts the media coverage of intriguing new work showing how chimp mate choice is influences by meat sharing. A great example of an interesting study twisted by bad science reporting.
  • What’s more important to a deep sea biologist – the size of your sieve or how you use it? Kevin Zelnio discusses new work suggesting sieve size can really matter. A lot.
  • Over at Denim and Tweed, we find that synchronization between trees resulting in big resource pulses (so called masting) may arise through a mixture of resource and pollen limitation, rather than any internal physiological clock. Definitely not what most folk are taught in Ecology 101.

    I’m truly enjoying the style and layout of your site. It’s a quite simple on the eyes which makes it considerably far more pleasant for me to come here and check out far more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Superb function!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a
    amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for
    me on Opera. Superb Blog!
