Nature versus science, transferring embryos or blame

Nature versus science, transferring embryos or blame
In 1785, as legend has it, the Scottish poet Robert Burns was plowing his field when he overturned the nest of a field mouse, leaving it without shelter against the approaching winter. He composed a poem on the spot to lament the illusion of control we all possess when it comes to Mother Nature:But mouse-friend, you are not alonein proving foresight may be vain:the best-laid schemes of Mice and Mengo oft awry,and leave us only grief and pain,for promised joy!(from To a Mouse, trans. M.R. Burch)
