What Darwin Saw Out Back

By: 

Charles Darwin is widely recognized as the father of evolutionary theory.  In recognition of his 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of his seminal book, “The Origin of Species,” the New York Botanical Garden has launched a stunning exhibition of his life and scientific work.

The exhibit features a full-scale replica of Darwin's house and garden.  His simple "at-home" experiments with plants provided him with key insights that contributed to his overall theory of evolution.

The New York Times article linked below includes a very informative slideshow, showcasing the exhibit.  For those of you living in New York or planning to visit, “Darwin’s Garden: An Evolutionary Adventure,” runs through June 15.
