Carnival of Evolution #17 at Adaptive Complexity

Over at Adaptive Complexity, Michael White has just compiled the 17th monthly Carnival of Evolution. Marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species (November, 1859), Michael structures submitted posts into a "virtual voyage of the Beagle." Topics range from the sexual habits of our ape-like ancestors* to a highly optimistic study predicting that the frequency of the creationist meme in the United States will drop to 0% by 2050.

* Which habits might, I think, explain why we never invite them round to tea.
