In support of the Biology Department’s
Darwin Day lecture series,
Booth Library has on display a curated list of books and DVDs on primate and human evolution.
Learn about me on “Darwin Day”!
Darwin Day is February 12th, the date of birth of Charles Darwin in the year 1809, at Shrewsbury, England. On this date, and throughout the month, people from all over the world are honoring the life, work and influence of Charles Darwin with events and activities which celebrate science and our shared humanity. Join in the events and celebrate the adventure of science, and the ‘passion to know’ that drives us to inquire, explore and discover what this world is all about. All events are free and open to the public.
Explore this topic by following the links to book and DVD catalog records, or visit the book display on the third floor of Booth Library in the main corridor.
