Mythology is a reflection of the human psyche, useful for explaining things so that even drunks can understand them. In this context, Brian uses Norse mythology to explain the role of three scientific disciplines (phylogenetics, ecology, and evolution) in wildlife conservation.
Brian is a Grateful Dead fan and connoisseur of fine tequilas. When the Dead aren’t touring, or when consuming tequila is unwise, he is a research professor at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology.
