How I put together my ESA talk (includes my slides)

In case anyone is interested, here are the slides from my talk at the recent ESA meeting (2 MB .ppt file).

In an attempt to provide some value-added, in the “notes” view you’ll find not only the text of my talk (I write my talks almost word-for-word), but comments on how I put the talk together. How I decided what material to include and what to leave out, why I designed my slides the way I did, and more. Including how my main result came to be called a “hydra effect” (short version: it was Chris Klausmeier’s idea, not mine). Not that this was necessarily the most super-awesome talk, or an especially difficult talk to put together. But I figure new students in particular might be interested in seeing some of what goes on “behind the scenes” in the construction of a short scientific talk.
