_mg_3814_wide-41753eca05203c97d7375fbf40ec14d7025b3024-s40-c85NPR ran a story this morning on the recent debate on scientific collecting that merged after the publication of Minteer et al. in Science, which suggested that scientists were the cause of several extinctions.  Our response (Rocha et al.), with over 130 co-authors, was published in favor of scientific collecting.  The NPR story presented both arguments and includes interviews from both parties.
