Very interesting blog!
I'm no professional researcher, but I have been looking for more info on language development research for a while, and its the best place I ever found.
Good job!

Not only does the book cover look like your logo, it looks a lot like "Language Evolution" (edited by Christiansen and Kirby). In fact, it's the same tree on both covers!
See here:

It's a good point about the two views of language. Wwhether you see language as "out there" to be learned - a global phenomenon - or based on individual, local interactions will affect your answer to the question of WHAT evolves in language evolution.

Here's another cover similar to that, from Tim Morton's "Ecology Without Nature": http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51GJhKwaNuL._SS500_.jpg

BLOGGER: The scene is pretty similar, but the tree is a baobab instead of an acacia.
