It’s the weekend, and what better use of your leisure time than reading AIF #13, compiled by Michael Barton at The Dispersal of Darwin. An appropriate month for Michael to host this issue, as February is the birth month of Charles Darwin – supreme hero to evolutionists and coleopterists alike! Sprinkled amongst captivating Darwin-related imagery (“old book plus beetle specimen” – above – is my favorite) are links to a record 32 posts dealing with beetles and their aficionados, including a cautionary note about biologists who have died in the line of pursuit. No way you won’t find this issue interesting!
The March issue of AIF will be hosted by Susannah at Wanderin’ Weeta. Submit your best beetle post (or two or three!) from the past month to her by email, or you can use this handy submission form if you prefer. Submission deadline is March 15, and the issue will appear 2-3 days afterward. I’d also like to encourage you to think about hosting a future issue – hosting is a great way to bring traffic to your site and maybe pick up some new regular readers. If you’re interested leave a comment or send me an email and let me know which month you wish to host – slots are available starting with the June issue.
