    1. I don’t think the talk was recorded. The talk was great, though, essentially a tour of Holldobler’s research highlights (Harpegnathos social dynamics, Myrmecocystus ritual fighting, recruitment behavior in Pachycondyla, Oecophylla, etc.)

      He closed by noting that he didn’t get a grant for much of his really interesting work, instead relying on short-term “boring” grants that promised more reliable results to sustain the lab. A bit of a jab at the short-sightedness of our funding bodies.
