Natural Selection Pie

Today is the 150th anniversary of the presentation of the work of Darwin and Wallace at the Linnean Society. Tell somebody about it, just one extra person. Simple things like this make all the difference. Many people might be surprised to hear that natural selection and evolutionary biology form the core of much of modern biology. Even some other biologists can be surprised! The Evolutionary Biology Group at Hull hosted a party for the Department this afternoon to celebrate the Darwin-Wallace anniversary. Lots of cava and a huge amounts of cake. A special mention to Rich who really got into the spirit of things and baked a “Natural Selection” gooseberrry pie (that tasted much better than it looked). I’m already looking forward to next year’s big celebrations of the publication of the Origin and Darwin’s birth.
