Podcast of lecture 2 - "Variation" - by Prof Jonathan Weiner

Last night's second lecture for the Darwin150 campaign - "Variation" - by Professor Jonathan Weiner went very well.

Professor Weiner won a Pulitzer Prize for his wonderful book, "Beak of the Finch", which shows evolution - and specifically variation - in action among "Darwin's finches" in the Galapagos Islands (and details the multi-decade work of Princeton biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant).
