From the Archives: this is the first in a series of posts on circadian clocks in microorganisms , originally published on February 23, 2006... Many papers in chronobiology state that circadian clocks are ubiquitous.
I will spend a week in Edmonton in early March, giving several talks at the University, visiting classes and labs, and having fun with my various hosts, including my brother and sister-in-law, Marie-Claire Shanahan, Desiree Schell and Joel Dacks.
I originally published this post on May 23, 2007, on the day of the 300th birthday of Karl Linne. When it's someone's birthday it is nice to give presents, or a flower.
I originally published this post on May 29, 2008. In the old days, when people communed with nature more closely, the fact that plants and animals did different things at different times of day or year did not raise any eyebrows.
I will be giving a public talk about the way the World Wide Web is changing the way science is communicated, taught and done on the campus of UNC Charlotte, tomorrow, Thursday February 23rd, at 6:30 p.m.
I originally published this on June 26th, 2006. The persistence of circadian rhythmicity during long bouts of hibernation in mammals has been a somewhat controversial topic in the literature.
Berry Go Round is a blog carnival devoted to highlighting recent blog posts about any aspect of plant life. If you have published a blog post about plants since the last issue on January 30th, send me the link by using this submission form.
Still digging myself out of dozens of "starred" must-reply-in-detail emails after ScienceOnline2012, as well as editing some blog posts and articles, etc, before I get back into my regular blogging routine.
On your way to ScienceOnline2012, your plane finally lands at Raleigh-Durham International airport. While you slowly taxi to the gate, what do you do?
I posted only 6 times in January. That is, on A Blog Around The Clock only (not counting the posts on The Network Central, The SA Incubator, Video of the Week, Image of the Week, or editing Guest Blog and Expeditions).
