In honor of today’s book winner, Last Chance to See, I’m putting up a 75-minute talk by Douglas Adams on the book (which he describes as his favorite) and endangered species. This was presented in 2001 at The University of California at Santa Barbara, only a few days before Adams’s tragic death at age 49 from a heart attack. He’s a superb speaker.
Note his mention of speciation starting at 1:08:25! There’s a question-and-answer session at the end.
