A comment to Wu, Zhang et al. "Paleoelevations in the Jianchuan Basin of the southeastern Tibetan Plateau based on stable isotope and pollen grain analyses" Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology (2018), https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2018.03.030

Poking holes into the walls of ScOmerta when it comes to peer review. Episode 3: How I declined to review just another paper with pseudo-scientific results published in a mid-tier, well-respected journal enriching the shareholders of RELX-Elsevier.

Beall's List is offline, but not we should keep his legacy alive.
E.g by making invitation mails public.

A post triggered by the recent paper of Liu et al. published in Molecular Phylogenetic & Evolution, pointing out the obvious and the less obvious with some ideas for open-minded scientists (and with a shitload of images, so worth reading without reading)

Another tale about the dark side of science and odd publisher/journal policies. Retired experts refusing that their co-authors share published data, to make it hard that outsiders can prove them wrong.

Four things that could (and should) be done in any palaeophylogenetic study, even when one still believes in tree inference as the perfect basis to model morphological evolution.

Just some lines about the new dream team, the presidential love birds, Jupiter Macron and Donald the Trumpel, and why their bromance was inevitable. Love is ... being a billionaire meeting a neoliberal ENArchist.

Just some explanations for what Donald Trump could have meant when tweeting "& breeding concept" beyond the obvious (i.e. nothing really).

Morphological data matrices provide few tree-like signals, for many reasons. But when we change to matrices that use individual fossils as OTUs (operational taxonomic units), we enter a realm where cladogenesis and dichotomy – tree-like evolution – is per se very rare: low-level evolutionary processes.
