The next post in Evolgen’s series on Detecting Natural Selection has been crossposted on Transitions: The Genetics Page. The series gets more fascinating with each post, and would dare I say, make a great book (just a hint)! Check it out!

In the meantime, I am in the process of selecting a new site of the week but the competition is tough!

Transitions: The Genetics Page

Two more parts of Evolgen’s series on “Detecting Natural Selection” are up at Transitions: The Genetics Page. Check them out and don’t forget to visit Evolgen

Transitions News

RPM at Evolgen has allowed me to cross post his series on “Detecting Natural Selection”. I have decided to create a new page for genetics at Transitions. The first two parts of RPM’s series can be found here.

I have also selected the next Site of the Week Check both out. Be sure to visit Evolgen while you are at it.

Transitions: Site of the Week

I have instituted a new “Site of the Week” category over at Transitions (which I hope will actually be weekly).

You can find out about the first site here. As always if you have a post that you think will fit with the mission of Transitions drop me a line. For example, if somebody had an interesting post on theEvolution of the Cichlid Mandible… or some such (you can also consult the posts already up for examples of what I am looking for).

I am also on the look out for more sites to link to, please consult the list of links at Transitions to get an idea of what I’m looking for. I’m especially interested in finding the following: interactive sites, sites with activities that teachers can bring into the classroom and sites dealing with the evolution of organisms other than hominins. This later is particularly important since at the moment there is a pronounced bias towards human evolution. So, if you know of any good sites relating to the evolution of you favorite organsism (note: I also don’t have much on invertebrates, viruses, etc.)leave a link in the comments section or email me. I should also mention that I’m looking for links on the “Cambrian Explosion”.

New Posts at Transitions

I have slightly updated two of my recent posts on primates and posted them at Transitions. I am hoping to have the third up tomorrow. I have also found several interesting sites and will be adding them to the links section as well. In the meantime, I’m always on the lookout for new material or links. If you have anything you think fits in feel free to contact me!
