Missing Mike Majerus

Mike Majerus, the Cambridge zoologist and lepidopterist, died overnight between this past Monday and Tuesday. Majerus patiently rebutted both religious antievolutionist and scientific misunderstandings of the evidence for evolution provided by industrial melanism seen in the peppered moth, Biston betularia.

NCSE has a summary rebuttal to antievolutionist claims about resting places of moths mostly based on the research of Majerus.
