what with all the faffing around with my moblog design yesterday, I forgot to post an image for origin day
, the 150th anniversary of the publication of darwin's on the origin of species.
I celebrated the event in a small way by attending a university of edinburgh lecture/debate thing hosted by zoologist aubrey manning.
if the weather was any better today I might have gone out and taken a suitably naturalistic picture to illustrate this great occasion. instead, the image above is from the simplified tree of life poster sitting on my wall. if you don't own a copy of this poster already you can order it free from www.openuniversity.co.uk/darwin
also, to hear the great edward o wilson talking about on the origin of species
