Good article; thanks for the pointer. I don't think, though, that
he attacks the discipline itself so much as he attacks Rothschild's
sloppily-researched book on it, and some of its followers. He
does not, in fact, have anything at all to say about specific
tenets of Bionomics (if indeed there are any; that's his main point).
