As announced on Tumbld Thoughts. Here's one resolution we can keep.....a new Carnival of Evolution for a new year! David Morrison at the Genealogical World of Phylogenetic Networks presents "Carnival of Evolution #67: the Alfred Russell Wallace centenary edition".
This edition features a short historical tribute to Alfred Russell Wallace, a contemporary and colleague of Darwin. Wallace is best known for his work in the area of biogeography, but has also contributed to our current understanding of phylogeny and natural selection.
Also featured is a recent Synthetic Daisies post called "Dragons, Sandpiles, and Cavefish: an evolutionary inquiry". This post relates nonlinear dynamical statistical models to cavefish evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo).
