Your biodiversity links... send them to me!

I'm hosting this month's Linnaeus' Legacy, but I need your blog writing to make it happen!

In the words of Christopher Taylor, this carnival's creator, Linnaeus' Legacy is about:

"Recent posts on the subject of biodiversity past and present, the study of said biodiversity and the questions of how to understand, describe and communicate about it. Posts will be accepted on all aspects of taxonomy and systematics, from the esoteric (species concepts, classificatory principles) to the pragmatic (new discoveries in the world of systematics) to the didactic (communicating about taxonomy). Since he established the practice of binomial nomenclature (originally intended to be simply a short stand-in for much longer, more official-sounding names), this is indeed Carl Linnaeus' legacy, though I'm not certain he'd appreciate everything we're doing with it."

So, send me anything and everything you've written in the month of June about the wonderful world of understanding biodiversity. I'm aiming to have this together by this coming Monday, so you have until the end of the week. If you don't send me posts, I'll just have to come and get those posts myself. I'll unleash the attack monitors...


  1. Well, I've seen what that monitor is capable of! Here is a post from my coblogger Eric Heupel at The Other 95%: Linnean Insect Collection Online.

  2. This is my first visit to your blog. So, I don't know if my post fit to your requirement. But you're more than welcome to visit mine http://wildlifewisdom.wordpress.com/2008/07/02/buitenzorg-%e2%80%98beyond-cares%e2%80%99-of-a-%e2%80%98botanical-island%e2%80%99/

  3. noonathome, that post seems fine to me. This older one is good too:
    I can put both in if you like.
