The 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin will be celebrated on 12 February 2009.
Because Darwin was one of the greatest thinkers in history there are lots of preparations going on around the world to celebrate this special event. Information for schools and others can be found here at Darwin 200.
You may be interested to know that the complete works of Darwin are online. This site contains all his publications, 20,000 private papers, the largest Darwin bibliography and manuscript catalogue and hundreds of supplementary works: specimens, biographies, obituaries, reviews, reference works and a gem is his first formulation of the theory of natural selection.
Meanwhile, I’ve been creating a new online course called—Think Darwin!—so that anyone can get their head around and harness the practical power of Darwin’s Theory—the most powerful theory in all of science!
