Hi all,

This week's Nature research highlights points us to BMC where Vrijenhoek,
Johnson, & Rouse present new information on the diversity and evolutionary
age of the Osedax lineage.

Direct links (open access):

Vrijenhoek R, Johnson S, Rouse G 2009. A remarkable diversity of
bone-eating worms (Osedax; Siboglinidae; Annelida). BMC Biology 7: 74.

And, recognising the 150th anniversary later this week of the publication
of the "Origin" on 22 November 1859, Nature has more Darwiniana in a third
special issue.
