More Darwin Day links....

Hello Bowsprite a New York Harbour Sketchbook, nice post and worth a visit for the fantastic Darwin's Botanical Garden artwork.

Adam Turinas' blog Messing About In Sailboats is for anyone who knows that feeling when you're sailing and there comes the moment boat gets up on her toes. He has been a long-term supporter of the Beagle Project, and celebrates Darwin Day here. (I really owe him a post...)

And to celebrate his 200th, what better way than with haddock (sustainably fished, I am sure) and chips with Guiness?. And a square rigger firing a cannon on the blog header. Who could ask for anything more?

The Oyster's Garter (science served wet and salty) brings in the barnacles for Darwin Day. I mean,what's not to like aout an orgamism that cements its head to a rock? Makes Prometheous looks wimpy, I say.

Adrian at Evolving Complexity does a great juxtaposition of beards Darwin birthday card. We like.

Mike at Tuibguy has a great collection of Darwin Day announcements and includes a splendid looking proclamation declaring 12 Feruary Darwin in Minnesota. (Here in Yorkshire, from where Darwin posted the first copies of The Origin to the world, our Mayor tried to ban a local artist serving tea and cakes to celebrate Darwin Day.)

Biochemicalsoul (how cool a blog name is that?) writes about Darwin and the heart of evolution. I'd always taken my ticker for granted, now I know how I got it.

Rick Macpherson of Malaria, Bedbugs, Sealice and Sunsets (the inspiration for the song 'these are a few of my favourite things') admits that his prize posession is a copy of Darwin's Zoology Notes and Specimen Lists from HMS Beagle. Elsewhere Rick asks us to consider and conserve the world's coral reefs, Darwin's second obsession.

Also at the wonderfully named Quiche Moraine.

If I've missed your Darwin Day post, apologies. Leave a comment or drop an email to peter at thebeagleproject dot com and we'll continue the round ups.
