Basic concepts in science

The crowd (and it is a crowd these days, up to 57 blogs) over at ScienceBlogs has decide to prepare a bunch of posts explaining various basic concepts in science, with the various bloggers each pitching in for their own subject areas. A couple of non-ScienceBlog types have also pitched in a few.

John Wilkins at Evolving Thoughts is collecting links to the various posts here.

The list is just getting some good critical mass; I hope it's something they continue, and continue to add new subject areas. In particular, I want to point out some great posts at Good Math, Bad Math on basic statistics concepts: Normal Distribution; Mean, Mode & Median; Standard Deviation; Margin of Error and Correlation (and Causation, and Random Variables).
