Charles Darwin - Natural Selection - May 14th, 2008

HMS Beagle, Galapagos Islands, Finches, Tortoises, Natural Selection and the Origin of Species are all words that we immediately recognize as part of Charles Darwin's life. But we think of him and his theory of evolution, we mainly think of it in animal terms. But surprisingly, Charles Darwin was highly trained in the area of botany.
Let´s hear this podcast from Scientific Talk from Scientific American to know a little bit more about Darwin's garden affinities. You should also take a look at the fine New York Botanical Garden exhibit.
