By investing in long-term project, ecologists have crafted living archives of animal behavior that now constitute decades of data on chimpanzees, marmots, scrub jays, meerkats, bottlenose dolphins – and more. Through a historical lens, this talk explores the importance of such long-term thinking in a world that exalts quick innovation.
