Evolution Resources

Over the past week, I’ve found a fair number of resources on evolution that I want to look more closely at. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to evaluate them right now. I’m posting this partly so that I’ll be able to go back and find these things again, and partly because I know that some of you will be interested. These resources are:

  • The Darwin Digital Library of Evolution, which contains all of Darwin’s writings as well as several works by his predecessors, those building upon his work, and people reacting to evolution. The library is hosted by the American Museum of Natural History, which also has an exhibit on Darwin’s work and Life. I got to see the exhibit in late November, and it’s really amazing. The admission is a little expensive, but I think it’s worth it.
  • A New York Times article on research about recent (within the last 10,000) human evolution:

    Wade, Nicholas. “Still Evolving, Human Genes Tell New Story.” New York Times. March 7, 2006.

  • An article in Science about a computer generated model for evolutionary trees.

    Francesca D. Ciccarelli, Tobias Doerks, Christian von Mering, Christopher J. Creevey, Berend Snel, and Peer Bork. Toward Automatic Reconstruction of a Highly Resolved Tree of Life. Science 3 March 2006: 1283-1287.

  1. Greetings,

    I believe I may know you from a listserv we’ve both belonged too, but, sadly, I cannot place you simply from your blog here. I found you via Victoria Marinelli’s blogroll. I’m experimenting with using rss/blogware in lieu of email; in keeping with that experiment let me invite you to say “Hi” either via email or via a comment at my site.

    Well, that’s all for now. Hope to hear from you, sorry if this is cryptic, but my self-imposed limits currently prevent me from knowing just whom I am addressing.

    Yours,

    beau (aka phaedral, aka link)
