About Science Frontiers

Science Frontiers is the bimonthly newsletter providing digests of reports that describe scientific anomalies; that is, those observations and facts that challenge prevailing scientific paradigms. Over 2000 Science Frontiers digests have been published since 1976.

These 2,000+ digests represent only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The Sourcebook Project, which publishes Science Frontiers, also publishes the Catalog of Anomalies, which delves far more deeply into anomalistics and now extends to sixteen volumes, and covers dozens of disciplines.

Over 14,000 volumes of science journals, including all issues of Nature and Science have been examined for reports on anomalies. In this context, the newsletter Science Frontiers is the appetizer and the Catalog of Anomalies is the main course.


Subscriptions to the Science Frontiers newsletter are no longer available.

Compilations of back issues can be found in Science Frontiers: The Book, and original and more detailed reports in the The Sourcebook Project series of books.

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 1: September 1977 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Australian Mistletoes Mimic Their Hosts Many species of Australian mistletoes closely mimic their hosts in leaf form and general appearance, blending deceptively into the host's foliage. Plant mimicry for purposes of protection (for example, stone plants) and for propagation are well known and, in the logic of evolutionists, have evolved because of the advantages conferred on the species. Since the Australian mistletoes are evidently highly palatable to arboreal marsupials, the tenets of evolution hold that it is only natural that these mistletoes should develop so as to resemble their hosts for purposes of protection. This is called cryptic or camouflage mimicry. Australian mistletoes parasitize a wide variety of plants, and it is truly marvelous how they can detect and imitate the leaves and appearances of such a wide variety of hosts. (Barlow, Bryan, and Wiens, Deibert; "Host Parasite Resemblance in Australian Mistletoes," Evolution, 31:69, 1977.) From Science Frontiers #1 , September 1977 . 1977-2000 William R. Corliss ...
