Trivers, Blowing the Whistle

I linked in Rober Trivers blog post on him blowing the whistle on research he was involved in, and his subsequent mistreatment. A follow-up here from Nature, basically confirming the issue with the research he was complaining about.

As I was telling my friend, if Robert f*ing Trivers gets in trouble for blowing the whistle, (Talk about silverback – although, of the eccentric type – some of us have a weakness for that eccentric type), imagine a poor graduate student who is nobody, with a whole future to be destroyed trying to bring up questionable practices.
