Happy Birthday Charles!

February 12, 2009 marks Darwin Day, the 200th anniversary of the birth of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin. That’s a lot of candles on his cake.

Donald Prothero, author of Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why it Matters is having a particularly busy week celebrating Darwin Day. You can catch him at one of several events he is doing in upstate New York in honor of Darwin’s birthday.
