The blogging world is wide and weird. Avoid the morass of family pictures, religious proselytising and teenage angst and head for the intellectual high ground. Here is a small selection of the biology blogs I've been reading lately.
The Lancelet is written by Martin Brazeau, a Canadian palaeontologist who is in Sweden studying the evolution of lobe-finned fishes. He blogs on evolution, fossils and his fieldwork back in Canada.
Palaeoblog by Michael Ryan also looks at vertebrate palaeontology, but from the perspective of a dinosaur expert. Plenty of good stuff to read here too.
Another must-read is Paul Myers' Pharyngula. Myers is an evolutionary biologist at the University of Minnesota. He has a damned fine brain and a writing style to match.
Darn it! Just go to Science Blogs and lose yourself for an hour or two. You know it makes sense.
