Carnival of Evolution #49 is up at Mousetrap. Our post this month is Andrew's tale of National Geographic, David Attenborough, Darwin's finches, and the Galapagos; if you haven't read it yet, check it out. It's an interesting glimpse into how these amazing nature documentaries get made – and how much luck is involved in their making.
Lots of other cool stuff in the Carnival too! I've been enjoying wrapping my brain around all the controversy surrounding group selection and kin selection, and there are several posts on that; but a dozen or two other posts, too.
It being the Mousetrap, they chose an animal trap theme for this month. Well, it's hard to fit these themes sometimes, but here's Andrew catching fish (probably guppies):
See you next month!
