Charles Darwin's statue at The Natural History Museum, London

Charles Darwin formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection in 1859. Today, in honor of his birthday, we present research and reflections on evolution, which makes sense of our complex world.

In Case You Missed It — In December, we shared SFI President David Krakauer's op-ed "Playing Go with Darwin" alongside landmark research by External Professor Andreas Wagner and co-authors, that demonstrates how Darwinian selection can influence an organism's capacity to evolve.
