I’m on vacation, so just a couple of links this week.
Here’s Vox on the history of the term “biodiversity” and the ongoing controversies surrounding it. Includes quotes from friend of the blog Mark Vellend, and links to Brian’s old post analogizing biodiversity to pizza. Related old post from me.
Nadia Eghbal on Arizona State University’s growth, and how it has zigged when many other US colleges and universities have zagged. Especially interested in comments on this from any readers based at ASU.
