  3. "A common use of Flickr is to find photos. But what about finding a new species of insect? Insect biosystematist Dr. Shaun Winterton discovered a photo on Flickr of a green lacewing taken by Hock Ping Guek (known as Kurt on Flickr). The insect was not identifiable as a known species to Winterton, and after collaborating with the photographer, a specimen was collected in the Malaysian rainforest. Further examination showed that this indeed was a new species. The discoverers named it Semachrysa jade. The discovery was published in ZooKeys and the abstract reads: A charismatic new species of green lacewing discovered in Malaysia (Neuroptera, Chrysopidae): the confluence of citizen scientist, online image database and cybertaxonomy."

  12. Important new news on mako sharks. For those of us that follow these things.
  13. This is nuts. The studies these inferences are based on have known errors and statistically insignificant results. See, for example, this: http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~cook/movabletype/archives/2009/06/of_beauty_sex_a.html How do people keep publishing this crap?
  14. Cool processing application by my friends Mad and Chris.
