A nice tribute to Peter Abrams, an eminent ecologist and evolutionary biologist who is retiring this year, from Jeremy Fox at Dynamic Ecology. By virtue of being in the same department I've been lucky enough to interact with Peter and the experience is a highlight of my time there. All I'll say is that Peter is both humble and brilliant, and his work is both wide-ranging and very thorough. Most books on ecology or evolutionary biology include a long list of references to his work, and he's an essential part of our field.
Also, I'm sure the comments will have lots of nice anecdotes, so head on over.
