Don't Judge Species On Their Origins
2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of the publication in Nature of an article titled, 'Don't judge species on their origins' (Davis et al., 2011). Perhaps the authors and others are planning to issue a follow-up? If their original paper is anything to go by it will be well worth reading because, as with all science, it's the testing and challenging of established ideas that grows and morphs our understanding.
