Clocking Up Carnivalia

Two recent carnivals of note, both of them at A Blog Around the Clock:

Berry Go Round brings you the latest news from the world of sessile photosynthetic eukaryotes (aka plants).

The Giant's Shoulders is a new carnival collecting reviews and commentaries on "classic" science publications. This is a fantastic idea - scientific progress does not occur in a cultural vacuum, and it is important to appreciate the history of scientific progress (or, in a few cases, regress). As a palaeontologist might potentially put it, "Those who do not know George Gaylord Simpson are doomed to make a twat of themselves by bringing up 'new' questions that were being argued about fifty years ago".
