1. Cambridge University Press has published a new book by Richard 
Burian, The Epistemology of Development, Evolution, and Genetics, in 
its series, "Cambridge Studies in Philosophy and Biology." The book 
consists of eleven of Burian's essays, four of them previously 
unpublished, plus a general introduction and short introductions to 
the four sections of the book, which are on methodological issues, 
evolution, genetics and molecular biology, and development.

2. Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical 
Sciences announces the June 2005 special issue dedicated to 
"Mechanisms in Biology," with guest editors Carl F. Craver and 
Lindley Darden.  This issue combines historical and philosophical 
perspectives on the following questions (and related questions): 
disputes about what mechanisms are, how mechanistic explanations 
differ from other explanations, which areas of biology use or require 
mechanistic explanations, and how the current enthusiasm in biology 
for mechanisms relates to historical forms of mechanism in biology 
and elsewhere.
