That the morphology of many pollinators corresponds strikingly to the shape of the flowers they pollinate was observed more than 150 years ago by Charles Darwin. He described this perfect mutual adaptation of flowers and pollinators as the result of a co-evolutionary process. Show More Summary
If you're reading this on the toilet (hey, no judgment), better relocate fast. Earlier this week, rangers on a cleaning run at Australia's Charles Darwin National Park discovered an unexpected patron in the park's restrooms — an olive...Show More Summary
When Medgadget was offered a chance to test drive a new direct to consumer personal audio amplifier from Audicus, we picked up on the invitation. You see, one of our editors, just like Charles Darwin, is a life long sufferer from Ménière’s disease, with the resultant tinnitus and bilateral low-pitch hearing loss. Show More Summary
In a study published today in the journal PeerJ, scientists from the Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) and the National Geographic Society revealed that the northern Galapagos islands of Darwin and Wolf are home to the largest shark biomass reported to date (12.4 tons per hectare). read more
In his autobiography, Charles Darwin (who would have rocked OneNote like a boss) said “If I had my life to live over again, I would… listen to some music at least once every week”. If he had done this in the 19th Century, Darwin’s paltry music collection would have been a been an overplayed playlist in no time. Show More Summary
Galápagos finches, also known as Darwin’s finches, are famous for their contribution to biological science. Charles Darwin observed and collected the animals while visiting the islands aboard the HMS Beagle in the 1830s, and later theorized...Show More Summary

Nearly 200 years ago, based on observations of finches in the Galápagos Islands, Charles Darwin proposed that a species may diverge in traits when competing for resources, and now, supporting this concept, a new study identifies the genetic locus that controls changes in beak size of these finches.

How Darwin classified minerals for his geological work.
Charles Darwin famously imagined evolution as a tree full of branches, a metaphor that biologists have since used to depict how life is structured. Now, researchers have given the tree of life another overhaul. Read more...
Dr Simon Park, a senior lecturer in molecular biology at Surrey University, has created the first ever cover of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species made entirely from bacteria. The seminal text, first published in 1859, laid the...Show More Summary
You know how you've always imagined Charles Darwin and Nikola Tesla in an all out Fight Club-level brawl? (Just me?)Then you're gonna love Science Kombat:
We all know Charles Darwin, the English naturalist who so famously contributed to the theory of evolution. But today the Department of Awesome Parenting learned that Darwin was also a father, a father who let his kids doodle all over his manuscript draft of On the Origin of Species. Show More Summary
From fish with legs to carrot cavalries, an endearing testament to the human life of science.
Smith’s web series Life Beyond Walls continues as surfers Dillon Perillo, Brett Barley, and Mike Gleason followed the footsteps of Charles Darwin, enduring 16 hours of travel to reach the little known surf destination of San Cristóbal in the Galapagos. The island, with a population under 6000, is home to the oldest permanent settlement of […]
What do Beethoven, Mark Zuckerberg, and Charles Darwin all have in common? They stumbled upon their greatest creative discoveries outside of the office.
From Hammurabi to Mendel, from Thomas Jefferson to Charles Darwin, we are compulsively drawn to classifying, categorizing and coding the world around us. Coding of all kinds, whether it's a cryptographic language, a body of laws or a bunch of computer instructions, imposes a basic logic and order. Show More Summary
Bernie and Hillary went at it in February dissecting progressivism during the debate. But what about the word needs clarification? Even Charles Darwin knew that progress (AKA evolution) is about the deepening and strengthening of moral...Show More Summary
Charles Darwin’s love of note-taking would no doubt have made him a true lover of Microsoft OneNote. Here’s how he would have used the app to organize his work and move his research forward. We’ll even show you how you can use the app, too. Show More Summary
Illustrator Diego Sanches has put together a series of pixel art for a forthcoming game featuring famous scientists, each of whom has special attacks based on their work. They include Charles Darwin using evolution: Stephen Hawking using a wormhole: And Isaac Newton using gravity: Check out Diego’s site for the full set of animation. Show More Summary
