A scientific giant has left us

I realize that nearly every other science blogger has probably already mentioned this, but so will I, because it's important. Yesterday, evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr, died at age 100. He was the architect of modern evolutionary biology, a giant in his field, whose influence on biology has been enormous for over six decades. A tribute is here, in Nature and here in The Scientist. Other tributes I've come across from fellow science bloggers can be found here, here, here, here, and here.
