Like all theoretical
biologists, I owe an enormous debt to Charles Darwin. His
'sexual selection' theories provide the
from which we are able to explore evolution in all its forms. In fact, most
theoretical biology involves simply extrapolating
Origin of Species.
But as well as
guiding my own
research into evolutionary processes, Darwin
also provided an equally
personal inspiration. His honesty,
courage and excitement for discovery were equally inspirational.
As well as being a
Darwin's extraordinary life and an insight into his inner world, this
web site is intended as a visual resource for scholars,
students. The object is to gather into a single online database every photograph,
painting ever made of Darwin during his life.
The site quotes extensively
short autobiography Darwin wrote in 1876, ostensibly for his children,
but obviously written with an eye for posterity.
