The National Science Foundation has launched a new special report, “Evolution of Evolution: 150 years of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species,” available via an interactive website. The main site includes a helpful timeline on evolution-related developments in anthropology, as well as other fields. The report’s anthropology page highlights video interviews with Susan Anton (NYU) and Ken Weiss (Penn State U). Click here to view an introductory video from the site, with scientists discussing the impacts of On the Origin of Species.
