Evolution focus in Science Times

This week's NY Times Science section is devoted to evolution, with articles by:

Carl Zimmer, on microbial evolution

John Noble Wilford, on human paleontology

Nicholas Wade, on recent human genetic evolution

Carol Kaesuk Yoon, on evo-devo

An essay by Douglas Erwin, about evo-devo and Darwinism

A video interview with my UW colleague, Sean Carroll

And several other things. I will be reading through these articles over the next several days and providing some annotation and commentary -- I think they are an interesting compilation of recent (and some older) developments in evolutionary science.
