Rafe’s interview: Thinking in how ecology and evolution can help us understand the world

In this interview, Rafe Sagarin addresses the importance of biological evolution in every day life, security and global change. One of the key elements of Rafe’s views was his exceptional power to make inductive thinking, by reviewing a number of case studies, he could create a strong narrative. This narrative went far beyond pure ecological problems, but rather it could be applied to all issues in human society. We need more scientists willing to take such as step, to cross disciplinary boundaries and make sense of ecology for our everyday life.
Rafe also comments on our book Observation and Ecology, showing that we live an era where ecology really can benefit from using such massive amounts of data that has not necessarily being collected for scientific purposes. Again, Rafe was provocative when calling for inclusion of non-ecologists into the development and application of ecology.
