As Darwin's 200th birthday nears, multiple media sources have unveiled special sections devoted to the originator of what is probably the greatest idea in all of science. Today's Science Section of The New York Times is simply outstanding. It showcases a PDF version of the Origin, as well as some commentary, and several articles that feature many familiar faces. The National Geographic has several related pieces, including a series of recent videos and (photo)essays, as well as an older collection by David Quammen.
If you have your favorite sources, please let us know, and do share how you plan to celebrate.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
