Notes for June 24th

  • Road kills are really hard on certain species.  Especially those with low reproductive rates.
  • That whole komondo dragon and bacteria story is still interesting, even with venom playing a major role.
  • Interesting question:  Why did dinosaurs have all those horns and spikes and armor and etc.? 
  • Interesting info about influenza and how swine and human interactions are likely to preserve certain strains far longer than would otherwise occur.
  • A planktonic trilobite.
