Both Ken and Matt Lamanna (third and second authors on the article,
respectively) will show up occasionally in these sorts of things.  Matt spent
months of his life sorting out the systematics of this beast and Ken was the
progenitor of the mangrove hypothesis.  Ken sat in for me on Friday on the
NPR thing.  I still haven't heard the bloody thing.
