Interview with Andrew Sheldon

Interview with Andrew Sheldon. from F. Felix on Vimeo.

Andy Sheldon was the last Resident Biologist at Sagehen Creek Field Station. We button-holed him during his recent re-visit for a Plecoptera Society meeting.

Sheldon talks about Sagehen's wild early years, the value of elevational transects, & why field biology will survive the ascendancy of genetic analysis.

MP3 file of unedited interview available here [turn sound down!!!].
