About Darwin 2009

Darwin Correspondence Project
The Darwin Correpondence Project online has grown out of a now long established project to publish al of Darwin's correspondence. The print version is is currently up to Volume 16, 1868. The online version is, for contractual reasons, a few years behind this. The site includes a Calendar of all of the letters known to be in existence, as well as including special focus sections on such topics as "Darwin and Religion" including interviews with major scholars.

Darwin Online Project
Directed and Managed by Dr.John van Wyhe, the Darwin Online Project hosts scanned and fully searchable first editions of every one of Darwin's works, as well as contemporary reviews of them. It includes many photographs and other images of Darwin and from his works. Darwin Online will be an invaluable resource for Darwin scholars for generations to come.

Richard Dawkins Foundation for Science and Reason

Darwin Symposium at Stonybrook

In November, The Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook, New York will host a comprehensive symposia marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of "The Origin of Species".  This NSF-sponsored symposium features outstanding speakers across the span of evolutionary biology, and is explicitly organized to foster interaction  and discussion. We expect the proceedings of the symposium to stand as a summary of the extraordinary progress of our field to date, and to point the way to an equally exciting future.

Charles Robert Darwin

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed, into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning, endless forms, most beautiful and most wonderful, have been and are being, evolved."
