This the afternoon I received a sad notice:

Yesterday morning Ernst Mayr died, ornithologist and the last of the great theoreticians that built Synthetic Theory of Evolution that was still alive .

Mayr had completed 100 years last July and died peacefully near his home in Bedford, Massachusetts.

We have lost a great mind:o( Thank you for sharing this news, Zeco. Dr. Mayr has been one of my favorite scientists since my college days.

I bought his last book "What Makes Biology Unique?" recently but didn't started to read it yet. 100 yo and yet writting books!
