Darwin Day is Duquesne's annual international celebration of the life and work of Charles Darwin. The event emphasizes the importance of science education in today's world, and the impact that evolutionary biology has on many aspects of our lives.
Join Drs. Rosemary and Peter Grant as they discuss the progress that has been made in our understanding of speciation with special reference to the young radiation of Darwin's Finches of the Galápagos Islands, drawing on the results of their long-term field study of finch populations spanning several decades, combined with laboratory investigations of the molecular genetic basis of beak development.
