Randolph Nesse on Darwinian Medicine and Testing Hypotheses

This is a great talk, both for its evolutionary insights on health and for his broader insights on the scientific method.

Randolph Nesse's book with George Williams, "Why We Get Sick" was an inspiration for my book on Darwinian Agriculture. I've proposed a seminar class that would read them together, as their are some interesting parallels.

Video of my talk at UC Davis...

...will supposedly be available here sometime this week. My Darwinian Agriculture blog has links to past talks, especially my 5-lecture series (and interesting discussions) at the International Rice Research Institute. But apparently some repressive governments block access to YouTube, which hosts those videos.

Dr. Who?

That's the theme of this months Carnival of Evolution, hostted by John Wilkins at Evolving Thoughts.
