Citations are not the only, or perhaps even the best, indicator of scientific importance. Still, 1000 citations! And, in fact, this paper did have an influence on bringing evolutionary thinking to conservation & policy. @IPBES @FutureEarth @mcgillu @BioMcGill @Trends_Ecol_Evo pic.twitter.com/ttKu2MCcJi— Andrew Hendry (@EcoEvoEvoEco) May 1, 2019
|Dinner after my first bioGENESIS meeting.|
I eventually became Chair of bioGENESIS and started to attend the broader DIVERSITAS meetings, where I rubbed elbows with many movers-and-shakers in the international science-policy interface, such as DIVERSITAS Chairs Georgina Mace of University College London and Hal Mooney of Stanford University. I was also through these contacts invited to give talks at various general events, such as Darwin’s 200th birthday celebration at the National Academy of Science in Washington, DC – events at which many of these movers-and-shakers were again present.

We had both interviewed for the same job, which Mike got!
