Darwin & the Sandwalk 3


Here is one that is just as topical as it was in the 90s. The Marsden Fund is the major fund for 'blue skies' (i.e. no immediately applied purpose) science in New Zealand. This year 91% of those that applied failed to get funding! I'm not sure that Charles would have recieved much funding in this environment! "Oh yes I'd like to breed a few pigions and see what happens".
