In our two-day symposium, 19-20 May 2009, you could do deeper into Darwin's theory of evolution and how it has evolved, guided by some of the greatest scientists in the field, from all over the world. The year of 2009 marks 200 years since Charles Darwin was born, and 150 years since his book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection was published. Darwin is by far the most famous biologist ever, and he changed the way we see our world. Evolution and natural selection belong to the foundations of modern sciences.
The symposium was arranged by the Swedish Museum of Natural History, and sponsored by the Marcus Wallenberg Foundation for International Scientific Cooperation, the Swedish Research Council, and the Wenner-Gren Foundations.
