Last summer, the Société Française d’Ecologie held a conference on evolutionary rescue – that is, can populations evolve themselves out of an environmental pickle? Some of the talks are here and they’re awesome. I’m supposed to be working on my ESA abstract, drafting my thesis proposal, and reading the first two chapters of an evolutionary theory book today, but I can’t drag myself away from Mark Kirkpatrick’s talk.
Also, Mark Kirkpatrick’s talks are way more interesting than his papers. Also, why are so many papers about super cool science so damn boring?
