HAPPY YEAR (and a half) OF THE... DARWIN!


Today, 150 years ago, natural selection was introduced to the world via Darwin's and Wallace's works at a meeting of the Linnean Society of London. Today marks the beginning of a year-and-a-half-long bash, celebrating such landmarks as the 150th anniversary of evolution (today), the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin (November 2009), and Darwin's 200th birthday (also Lincoln's, Feb. 12 of next year).

Let the festivities begin!
