I added Baum & Baum, 2014, BMC Biology, on a new theory of the evolution of eukaryontic cells. A must-read (and available free full text, I added the URL to the entry)!

hopefully this might interest some of you. Please see my blog on plastic debris in seabirds "Research on marine plastics is revealing its spread up the food chain"

Atanas G. Atanasov It is actually a review and not an article with new research results… covers some great biomedical research done in the last couple of decades.

please help me populate this group with relevant articles if you are an ecologist:

I would add Sydney Brenner's seminal paper on C. elegans, which established the nematode as model system for genetics research:
The genetics of Caenorhabditis elegans.
Brenner S.
Genetics. 1974 May;77(1):71-94.

Sjúrður Hammer do you know how to add the reference to the group? in your mendeley desktop you can move the reference from your own library to the biology classics group.

thanks for the suggestion!

Please note that the group description encourages any reference additions to be complimented with a note or comment on why you believe it should be added to the collection of biology classics

for all you people that use Feedly. Here's a neat plugin that will allow you to import directly from feedly (browser) into your Mendeley library

Kyle Taylor This is a (readable) 2005 paper by Hubble on the Neutral Theory of Biodiversity, addressing some common criticisms of the theory from the niche-theorist perspective and clarifyies NT sampling approaches and underpinnings. It stands out as a good introduction to Neutral Theory.

Dear Mendeley user,

The iRiS research group at University of Pittsburgh is conducting a study to learn how researchers use academic social networking sites. Please find the following link to the questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your attitudes toward your usages of Mendeley. We will only analyze your answers in aggregation, and will not release them to others. This study has been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board (# PRO12090367).


We hope you can participate in our study. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Daqing He I apologize for cross-posting this, but we still need more people. This survey will open to late November. Thank you

I've removed quite a few articles from this group as I thought there were too many (and maybe some inappropriate as "classics"), but please don't hesitate to add papers. It would help if you used tags to briefly give an indication of what is "classic" about it
Mahboob Imtiyaz
Journal of Errology is giving away a free iPad to researchers submitting the stories behind their published paper.. Hurry up with your submissions....

About this group

All the texts that should be read by everyone in biological sciences at least once! If you add a paper, you have to write why you think it is a classic. Thanks for sharing regardless!
