comment Where do migratory birds go when it rains?
@Pimgd presumably most clouds can't move faster than birds since they can ride the same currents. So to avoid big clouds the birds could fly with (or alongside or in front of) the cloud. This would help explain Kyle's answer on why the ones that continue flying end up far away: staying out of the cloud forces them to fly off course.

comment Is there a standard reference for the importance of tumor heterogeneity?
Welcome to the site! Do you know any other sources for Alexandrova's essay apart from a dropbox link? I know a lot of people are unwilling to click those. Also, could you make your answer a bit more self-contained by taking a reference or two out of Alexandrova's essay for when you say "has been around for a long time", for example? That way people can have an idea of the timeline without having to leave this answer.

comment Is there a standard reference for the importance of tumor heterogeneity?
That paper is very well cited (over 1000 times!), but I agree with @WYSIWYG that 2012 seems too recent. Is there a richer history with Gerlinger and Swanton that you could expand on in your answer? Or did you intend this as a comment?

Depending what you mean by cognition, it could be zero.
