My Year of Darwin 11/08/2014: a profound admission
"Our ignorance of the laws of variation is profound." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)
I have to admit I found the chapter "Laws of Variation" boring - really boring. And I love this stuff. Lots of examples without much synthesis and the examples were mostly pigeons and barnacles with a number of pages on horses.
Three-wattled Bellbird from Central America. These guys are on my bucket list. LOVE THEM!
