“Variation” – Darwin150 Lecture 2 by Professor Jonathan Weiner
We had a great lecture tonight live from Columbia University by Professor Jonathan Weiner.
His talk – “On Variation” – was the second lecture of our five-part Darwin150 lecture series. Professor Weiner won a Pulitzer Prize for his wonderful book, “Beak of the Finch”, which shows evolution – and specifically variation – in action among “Darwin’s finches” in the Galapagos Islands (and details the multi-decade work of Princeton biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant).
