  3. “Hutchinson is generally considered by ecologists to be the father of modern ecology. Before Hutchinson, ecology was, to a large extent, natural history.”

    That’s a bit of a wild over-statement for sure, but an article about G. Evelyn Hutchinson in the popular science lit is, well, unheard of. Will be reading this one for sure–many thanks for the find!
