Carnivalia

Here’s the latest carnivalia for you to enjoy;
Carnival of the Vanities, 9 October edition. This blog carnival focuses on excellent blog writing on any topic. I love this blog carnival and always find something interesting to read here.
Brain Blogging, the 40th edition. This blog carnival deals with the brain and this issue discusses how to beat the aging process, what really is cognition, fooling the doctors, and many more interesting topics.
Carnival of the Blue, a deep sea blog carnival. This blog carnival represents the other 70% of this wonderful planet that we live on.
Carnival of the Liberals, issue #75. This is filled with news about liberal issues — and who knows? Maybe “liberal” will be transformed from a dirty word back into a word that represents the fine legacy of intellectual activity and compassion that it always has been.
Linnaeus’ Legacy, issue #12. This blog carnival celebrates biodiversity! And despite humanity’s ongoing efforts to reduce biodiversdity to one species each of domestic housecat, domestic dog, and mouse, two species of rats, and three or four species of cockroaches, there is still some biodiversity left to celebrate. Whew.

About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.
