قالوا: أتحب الشام؟ قلت جوانحي
مقصوصة فيها وقلت: فؤادي.
They asked: do you like Sham? I cut my ribs and said: my beating heart it is.

Happy Biodiversity Day! Scientists have formally identified about 1.8 million species on Earth—the majority of which are insects and spiders. But studies suggest that the total number of our planet’s species could range upward of 10 million. This variety of life—and its interdependence—is called biodiversity. There's variety in genes, variety among species, and a variety of ecosystems. Everything is interconnected, or dependent on everything else. Visit the Museum’s Hall of Biodiversity to learn more about the abundance of life on Earth. Photo: R. Mickens/©AMNH

It’s time for Trilobite Tuesday! The Silurian exposures of the English Midlands have been yielding amazing trilobite specimens for centuries. Those from the Wenlock limestone formations near the town of Dudley are among the most beautiful in the world. One particular species, Calymene blumenbachii (pictured), has become synonymous with the area, and the coat of arms for the Dudley County Borough Council proudly includes an illustration of the fossilized local “locust.” More than 80 trilobite species have been discovered and described from the area’s most famous collecting locale, Wren’s Nest, where the 420-million-year-old strata has produced hundreds of magnificently preserved complete specimens. Now designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (where digging for fossils is prohibited), Wren’s Nest remains one of the most studied and storied of European fossil locales.
