This is the last installment of Creature Feature for a while, as I turn my full attention to finishing my Ph.D. It’s inspired by recently getting to meet Peter and Rosemary Grant, who are both the most famous and the absolutely nicest biologists on the planet. All the information in the piece is from their wonderful book, 40 Years of Evolution.
Thanks for reading the column! Links to the previous 27 pieces can be found under the Creature Feature Category, and I look forward to restarting this eventually. In the meanwhile, drop me a line if you’ve got a question or an observation to share!
