The Young Researchers Lunch hosted a second guest for March, R. Ford Denison, author of the book, Darwinian Agriculture.

Dr. Denison was at IRRI to give a series of lectures derived from the book and hold discussions and debate with IRRI researchers. He shared his perspectives on agriculture and evolution, saying that he believes situations in nature may not necessarily be best for agriculture.

Attendees during the lunch meeting were Crystal Concepcion, Joseph Sandro, Govinda Rizal, John Carlos Ignacio, and Michelle Anne Bunquin.

The Young Researchers Lunch is a monthly meeting for scientists who are in the early stages of their career. Its aim is to provide an opportunity for discussion with senior scientists on a range of topics on science, including career paths.
