Molecular biologists: let’s reconnect with nature

Charles Darwin’s voyage on HMS Beagle led to a treasure trove of observations: the behaviour of cuttlefish, a parasitic ichneumon wasp feasting inside live caterpillars, fossils of extinct giant sloths and ‘mastodons’. The result, of course, was his theory of natural selection. Darwin needed the complex natural world to inspire…
