Ep 8. Airborne contraceptives, police ants and mediocre pool shots with Luke Holman

October 5, 2016

Being a zoologist isn't all about spending time in the wilderness catching animals, most days are spent working behind a computer analysing data and interpreting your findings. In this episode we talk to Luke Holmann from the University of Melbourne who crunches the numbers to understand why some animals have evolved to be social.

Also we discuss spots versus stripes as we play one of the worst pool games in history.
