Friday's Primate Party

Let's move away from the recent beverage theme this week.

CNN has a really cool article* about famous primates in science. Everything from space pioneers and famous linguists to the first known non-human tool user. It's a great reminder of the contributions that primate research can make to human knowledge - but never let us forget that this comes at a cost.

In other news, Mongabay.com reports that the International Journal of Primatology is offering open access to its peer reviewed research articles until the end of the year. Go and check it out!

*It's not often that you'll see that combination of words on this blog

  1. Thank god for no more disgusting-sounded beverages! :-) So have you tried that civet droppings coffee yet?

  2. Nope! I'm not really much of a coffee drinker, and I doubt that tea leaves would survive the digestive process as well as coffee beans seem to do!

I promise to respond to all respectful non-spam comments! Don't be shy! Oh, and please don't type my surname in your comments; I know you all know what it is, but I'd prefer Google to rank other pages before this blog.
