Notes for May 27

  • The domestication of maize (or corn as some call it).  My interest in domestication extends beyond animals, in case you didn't know.
  • The land use in surrounding areas is an important predictor of the bird diversity in wetlands.  Although this is pretty intuitive, I don't think it is reflected in regulation or has had much evidence to support it.  
  • Based on the photo accompanying this article...the space shuttle has done some serious work.
  • 7,100 miles in 9 days...non-stop.  Whoa.  Hello godwits!  Another example of dinosaur evolution.
