James Costa – Darwin’s Backyard: How Small Experiments Led to a Big Theory

September 22, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Blvd
Bronx, NY 10458 United States

Charles Darwin is an iconic figure in evolutionary biology, but behind the icon is a naturalist with a twinkle in his eye and a passion for “fool’s experiments.” Sometimes quirky, often amusing, and always illuminating, Darwin’s amazing array of hands-on experiments were an ever-present part of his home life. His inventive experiments yielded universal truths about nature, and evidence for his revolutionary arguments in On the Origin of Species and other watershed works. After the lecture, James Costa will sign books in the Mertz Library.
