    DescriptionThe second talk* that particularly impressed me during the Meta.Morf 2022 – Ecophilia conference organised by TEKS in Trondheim a few weeks ago, was Laura Beloff‘s The Dark Side of Evolution; On Ticks. While the whole festival explored the ambiguities of society’s self-proclaimed love for nature, Beloff‘s contribution probed into ecophobia and more specifically the rejection and disgust we feel towards creatures like ticks and other parasites.
