Abstract

Perhaps the original drama is the drama of mating. Tension arises from the question of whether nature, against all odds, is going to permit reproduction to occur, life to go on. Considering the preposterous odds, the fecundity of life may be the strangest thing about this planet - yet it is also the most ordinary.
