Posted Sep 27 2010 4:53am

Welcome to the XL edi­tion of Sci­en­tia Pro Pub­lica (or, since we are trying to speak English, the 40th edition of “Science for the People”), the rotating blog car­ni­val that show­cases the finest sci­ence, med­ical and envi­ron­ment writ­ing pub­lished in the blogosphere.

Quick now — ask a question, any question, that comes to mind. Chances are someone in this excellent roster of science bloggers has anticipated it and provided an answer below. Enjoy!

  2. Does Western Style Diet Increase Risk of ADHD

About our peers

  1. What exactly is that fuzzy layer of sediment in the pond (pic: fishpond fever)

And that´s it for today.

Good news: given the growing amount of entries received, Scientia Pro Publica is turning weekly, at least for a while. What does this mean? Two things: 1) next edition, hosted by Deep Thoughts and Silliness , will go live  next Monday, October 4th, 2) the Carnival needs more hosts!

To send submissions to the next issue , please use this automated submission form , making sure to include the URL or “permalink”, the essay title and a brief summary. To volunteer to be a host, please send an email to ScientiaBlogCarnival at
