Decided to dig some more into Randy's material, which meant I spent much of the day doing literature searches, catching up on the past three weeks' Nature and Science, and loading up my citation manager with lots of new stuff.

I'm rather pleased to have encountered an entire special issue in Science about Biodiversity (which I need to load into my citation manager still), and a number of tests that relate to Evolution understanding/acceptance, namely the GAENE (Generalized Acceptance of Evolution Analysis) and the EALS (Evolutionary Attitudes and Literacy Survey).
