The Importance of Charles Darwin

In 2009 the science of evolutionary biology sees two major celebrations. On November 24th it will be 150 years since the publication of On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, and this Thursday (12th February) would have been Darwin's 200th birthday. Were he only still here to marvel at the advancements made in the biological sciences following his insight into the interconnectedness of living things.

Here's Richard Dawkins in a short [2:07] video on 'The Importance of Charles Darwin'. Watch it on YouTube or go to National Geographic for hi res.

More of these short videos to come. Thanks to Sandwalk for pointing them out.
