I am proud of Kirk. I think he drums to his own drummer in every way.

Kirk is a man, and he loves it. He loves women.

You don't need a love scene to show love.

A lot of very, very big stars were going down and not being seen or heard from again. Kirk took a huge chance in putting a blacklisted writer's name on the screen and somehow or other, he survived it, like he survives everything.

Every actor in the room honored Sidney for being there so many years before. And everybody was so moved to be at a place where history was being made again. It was tangible.

I did my very first film with Kirk in Detective Story when he was the greatest, greatest star in the world. I fell in love with him, had a crush on him then.

My instinct was that it was Sidney's childhood in the Bahamas that gave him the fearlessness to fight racism. So this documentary was a kind of rounding out of what had begun in that scene in In the Heat of the Night.

People break down after a couple of hours. All the defenses go down, and there's a kind of communication that if I spent 20 years in a living room with one of these people, I would never, never know as much about them as I do in that one day.

What goes on between a father and a son, which is usually such a private matter, is that they are able to be honest with each other, and be honest with me, as a director. It's just remarkable.

When I became a director, I wanted to convince a very reluctant Sidney into allowing me to go on the journey of his life. Sidney had gone ahead of every other African American actor.

Almost nothing is known from hybridization studies about the inheritance of courtship behavior of females, or of their responsiveness to particular male signals.

Closely related species of birds are also chromosomally similar.

Evidence of epistasis from hybridization studies is more scarce.

Exchange of breeding individuals between two populations tends to homogenize their gene pools.

Genes that underlie the capacity to receive, use and transmit information are the evolving properties.

Islands are known to differ in the food supply available to ground finches, mainly seeds.

Males transmit signals in courtship through behavioral displays.

Plumage features constitute a major component of courtship signals.

Species can be recognized by their morphological characteristics and songs.

The process of speciation is completed with the cessation of genetic exchange.

The theory of founder effects does not explain how novel features like plumage traits arise.

Thus mating of females was strictly along the lines of paternal song.

We observe closely related species in sympatry and infer how they evolved from a common ancestor.

Tags: Common, Observe, Related

The divergence of songs in the new population away from those in the progenitor population would only be prevented if these processes were balanced by repeated immigration and subsequent breeding: song flow.

The independent role of morphology in mate choice is revealed by the rare instances where the usual association between song and morphology is disrupted.

Tags: Between, Choice, Song

Thus the genetic basis to the origin of bird species is to be sought in the inheritance of adult traits that are subject to natural and sexual selection.

Tags: Adult, Bird, Natural

To summarize, the particular song a male sings, and the behavioral responses of females to song and morphological signals, are not genetically inherited in a fixed manner but are determined by learning early in life.
