Scott, thanks for the link. I'll be reading it tonight.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

It was also Lincoln's but he didn't contribute as much as Darwin. 

Respectfully disagree....

Didn't he study birds in Hawaii?

Not sure Abe made it to the islands...

He definitely was a pioneer in the field, but man is he old.

Didn't Kegger go to grade school with him?

I echo a high five to "Chuck".  Two of my favorite dudes, born the same day - Abe and Chuck.

Darwin's "The Voyage of the Beagle" is a must read. 22 years old, heads out on a five-year voyage, a summary of journal accounts tees up his "The Origin of Species."  This guy lived the dream - volcanoes in the Galapagos, the Gossamer spider of Patagonia, the Australian coral reefs, a little Straight of Magellan, a touch of Tahiti, etc. Good stuff.

Man I love the internet.  "Voyage of the Beagle" available online - enjoy

Happy 200th Birthday Charles Darwin.

As hobbyists, I think we don't fully appreciate the work that is done in studying and describing animals. We, as  cichlid keepers are very effected by evolution and speciation. There are a few thousand described cichlids out there and hundreds of undescribed species. Right now as you are reading this, species are evolving and changing. Darwin had a lot to do with starting the theory and his work should be appreciated more.

So here is to the man who started the trend of evolution, speciation, and natural selection.
