Some conservation strategies assume that the evolutionary distances between species on a phylogenetic 'tree of life' (a branching diagram of species popularized by Charles Darwin) can be used to predict how diverse their biological features will be. Show More Summary
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” ~ Charles Darwin And so too for today’s marketer. In our unforgiving world of fast changing markets and a 26 month average tenure for CMO’s, leading marketers couple instinct [...]
I don't care that I don't have kids. I still want this:
Size differences among fish and competition for breeding space lead to the formation of new species, according to a new study, but empirical evidence for this is scarce, despite being implicit in Charles Darwin’s work and support from theoretical studies. Show More Summary
Competition may play an important role during the evolution of new species, but empirical evidence for this is scarce, despite being implicit in Charles Darwin's work and support from theoretical studies. Dr Martin Genner from Bristol's...Show More Summary
The world just finished celebrating the birthday of Charles Darwin on February 12th, who, I’m sure you’re aware, was the originator of the evolutionary Theory of Natural Selection. Known as his dangerous idea, it was outlined in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species by Means...

In 1835, Charles Darwin, on his H.M.S. Beagle voyage reached Chile, and experienced a very strong earthquake and shortly afterward saw evidence of several feet of uplift in the region. He repeated measurement a few days later, and found the land had risen several feet. Show More Summary
The people who have a problem with Charles Darwin in Missouri are still tossing the bone up in the air and wondering why it comes down.
On Feb. 12, Darwin's birthday, scientists name a long lost new beetle genus and species after him to commemorate the legacy of the father of evolution. The beetle was collected by Charles Darwin in 1832 in Argentina during the Beagle's voyage. The specimen was considered lost for many years until it was rediscovered recently in the Natural History Museum, London.
From Consequence of Sound: With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at some unexpected evolutions in the music world, whether that’s from one musical style or persona to another (think the difference between the Finches on the Galapagos), or from music to another effort entirely (maybe the jump from tortoise to giraffe).

Yesterday, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) took to the House floor to speak in honor of Charles Darwin in honor of his 205th birthday -- just weeks after introducing H. Res. 467 (viewable here) recognizing today as Darwin Day:
Today is Charles Darwin's birthday, otherwise known as "International Darwin Day." You might be wondering how to celebrate today, as I was.
Happy Darwin Day! Today is a "global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin," explains the International Darwin Day Foundation. "Like Galileo, Newton...Show More Summary
Since today is Charles Darwin's birthday, I wanted to do something fun with my osteology class. And since the Sochi Olympics are also ongoing, I figured I'd meld them into the... OsteOlympics. (Man, I love a good portmanteau!) We --Show More Summary
Happy Darwin Day! Is that even an appropriate thing to wish somebody? Especially so close to Valentine's day? Charles Darwin in 1868. The white-bearded patriarch that haunts every creationist and reason-denier. By Julia Margaret Cameron,...Show More Summary
I thought I’d include a picture of the young Charles Darwin, since we are celebrating his birthday today. That’s him in 1816, when he was 6 or 7 years old, with his younger sister, Emily Catherine Darwin. And then I started wondering about that other person in the picture. Darwin’s sisters were an extremely important…
In 1832 Charles Darwin disembarked from HMS Beagle in Bahia Blanca, Argentina where he travelled by land to Buenos Aires. In Bahia Blanca, Darwin collected several fossils of large mammals along with many other living organisms, including several insects. Show More Summary
He revealed a disquieting intimacy between humans and other animals
