Of insects and flowers and things

One of the great biologists of my generation was Thomas Eisner, and we were saddened by his recent death. He studied many things and used his cleverness to figure out a great many ways with which insects interacted with the rest of the world. A very nice post on some of the highlights of his career can be found at the Artful Amoeba, a very fitting tribute to his career. The Phactor heard Tom give several lectures and they were always interesting, and a couple of my colleagues studied with Eisner too. Just excellent biology.
