What a week... I am deep, deep, deep into several new features, but the weekly news stories continue.
First up, this week's two new Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
Rarest Kiwi Species Takes Flight
Critically Endangered Purring Monkey and 1,900 Other Species Added to IUCN Red List
And here's my latest batch of articles for Mother Nature Network, which definitely gave me odd stories to write about this week:

That's it! More next week!
