Hens Teeth and Horses Toes: Further Reflections in Natural History by Stephen Jay GouldInteresting. Gould wrote these essays around the time that the Alvarez meteoric impact theory was being published. This is something that we now know to be beyond doubt. But at the time, when it was just being introduced, the theory, and especially its association with the Cretaceous extinction, was not immediately embraced on the part of paleontologists. This led Luis Alvarez, no doubt in his frustration, to call paleontologists not very good scientists. Oh dear! But Goulds coverage of the developing story is very fine and can be followed here and in his subsequent books, especially The Flamingos Smile.
