150th anniversary of 'On the Origin of Species' & 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth

Darwin 2009 commemorations

Darwin Day 12 February 2009.

The year 2009 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species (24 November 1859) and the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth (12 February 1809). This page on Darwin Online aims to list the associated worldwide events and publications.

Submissions for this list should be emailed to Dr John van Wyhe in the form: 'day month year title. Sponsor/venue. Link.'

Items are loosely grouped into 'Events', 'Publications' and 'Films and documentaries'. Although this list is currently very far from comprehensive, it is probably the largest list of worldwide Darwin events in 2009.

Many more such events lots of excitement this week on blogs all around and other fans of reality. Darwin Day in the Blogosphere.
