Here is the main page. Much of it is in Portuguese, but despair not if Portuguese is not a language that you know. There are plenty of English posts as well.

For Example: Mine is larger than yours by Carlos Hotta.

Candiru (or the-fish-you-don’t-want-to-know-about) by Carlos Hotta

Women in Science – Margareth Mee and Maria Werneck de Castro by Paula Signorini

Navigation is required*: the incredible case of the desert ant by Ciencias da Vida

(I apologize for the lack of diacriticals. This blog mangles them quite badly. No diacritical is better than a bunch of crazy symbols.)

    Hi Greg,

    thanks for the divulgation. Those posts were translated by us so people can have a sample of our new site. In the future, we intend to have a blog exclusivelly in english with translated texts.

    Just a correction: the first text was written by Atila Iamarino, the second by Igor Santos and the last by me.

    I appear as an author because I was the one who translated then and uploaded in the blogs.

    Mangles? I’ve never had a problem with posting escape codes in the comments. Is it perhaps your editor rather than the back end?
