Cancer and Evolution

For those of us way behind the curve, too filled with molecular biology to understand Dr. Scott Findlay's presentation a couple of weeks ago that related ecological concepts to cancer therapeutics, there is a recent paper in Nature Cancer Reviews that nicely summarizes the ideas behind thinking about cancer in terms of ecology and evolution. I ganked the picture from the paper, but since I've been trying to download it again my browser keeps crashing. Coincidence?
