Special issue of Nature on evolution
This week's Nature is a special issue on evolution. You can access it through the library website (electronic journals). There are a couple of news articles looking at recent research on the evolution of human culture, a debate on whether scientists should research the link between race and IQ, a fanciful article asking what would've happened if Darwin's publisher had asked him to rewrite the Origin as a popular book about pigeons, an article about how Darwin's anti-slavery views shaped his scientific ones, reprints of the poetry of Darwin's great-great-granddaughter, and a bunch of review articles on various evolutionary topics by various famous evolutionary biologists.
