Tuesday Double Feature I: John Maynard Smith

A friend used to say that my most treasured possession was a letter (not an email, a signed letter) from one of the great biologists of the 20th Century, John Maynard Smith, declining a conference invitation (very politely). I’ve since lost that letter when changing countries, upgrading my Luke Skywalker in Hoth action figure to the #1 place. If you like this 90 second clip of JMS on sexual selection, follow the youtube link, where full length lectures have been uploaded.
