Incoming publications


A week ago last Thursday, I got both copies of the reprints of my latest article. Yes, I know people are going to download the PDF of my article, but dang it, I still like having the paper reprints. The publisher, Karger, does such a nice job on them... If you would like a reprint, just email me and I'll stick it in the mail.

The same day, I also got an unexpected bonus: a copy of Sean Carroll’s Into the Jungle (see here describing his talk based on material in this book). I got sent a copy because the publisher is hoping to use it as a textbook or textbook supplement, I think.


Monday night, I found out that the Open Laboratory 2008 is now available for sale. Again, I know you can read every entry in their original form on blogs, but the editors did such a nice job on the compilation...


And finally, the actual issue that my latest review is in came into my mailbox yesterday.

I'm reading "Into the Jungle" right now, and it's an entertaining quick read that is definitely geared for undergrads. I think it's probably even appropriate for a freshman forum type of class- the biology is very jargon-free and clearly described.

One thing that happened with me is that several chapters dragged me way back to kidhood. I remembered reading about the discovery of Protoceratops and dinosaur eggs, and the finding of the coelocanth...

But even adult pro biologist that I am learned a lot of new stuff, too. Maybe I'll do a book review once I get it back from my student Sakshi.
