Yesterday was Darwin Day, the 150th anniversary of “On The Origin of Species.” I had grand plans that were completely scuttled by vast steaming heaps of work. So here’s a collection of links for belated celebration.
- The Guardian has a huge feature.
- Shifting Baselines on Darwin’s contributions to marine science
- Rick MacPherson goes into more detail on Darwin’s work on coral reefs
- And Emmett Duffy on Darwin’s beloved barnacles
And check out the Beagle Project. They’re going to build a replica of the HMS Beagle and retrace Darwin’s voyage. They’re heading out next year in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth.
