Darwin’s dice [infographic]

Charles Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection changed the way scientists understood our evolutionary past, and is a concept with which most people are quite familiar. One often overlooked element of Natural Selection, however, is the role that chance plays in guiding this process. In Darwin’s Dice: The Idea of Chance in the Thought of Charles Darwin, Curtis Johnson examines many of Darwin’s most significant writings through this lens. Celebrate Darwin Day by discovering the important role chance plays in Darwinian Theory.
