    I’m disappointed that Strier didn’t address the matter of collaborative breeding. I suspect that the muriquis’ harmonious lifestyle is predicated upon some predilection to care for each others’ children, much as marmosets, tamarins, titi monkeys, and (of course) humans do.

    Thanks for linking the Kansas article; the depletion of the aquifer has been in the news a lot here.

    Am I reading it right? They’re really not bothering to rotate crops anymore?
