What Darwin Didn't Know: Evolution Since the Origin

Andrew Berry of Harvard will discuss contemporary developments in evolutionary theory, and the enduring insights of Darwin's Origin of Species, over dinner at the Stamford Sheraton.

Andrew Berry is a Lecturer in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard College, and was previously a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows.  He is co-author, with James Wilson, of DNA: The Secret of Life, has contributed to scripts for several PBS series, including NOVA, and is one of the most sought-after presenters on the Harvard Speakers Bureau roster.

His talk will encompass contemporary developments in evolutionary theory, the remarkable robustness of Darwin's thinking in the face of enormous recent leaps in genetics, and findings from Dr. Berry's own original research into evidence for natural selection.

Join us for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres begining at 6 pm, followed at 7 pm by dinner, Dr. Berry's remarks, and a lively discussion.

The cost is $50 for HCFC members and their guests, $65 for non-members.
