On The Origin of Species

On Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’

In addition to being the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, 2009 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of his fundamental work, "On the Origin of Species." As with many original sources, it is known mostly by reputation. Few people who are not biologists read Darwin in the original. But his writing can still offer surprises, insights and pleasures, and it can be sampled here, with selections by prominent scientists of their favorite passages and discussions of why these passages are important.

Topics Include:

What Drives Evolution

Sexual Selection

What Is a Species?

The Community of Life

The Wonderful Eye
