Darwin at the Royal Tyrrell Museum

I visited the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta today. In addition to an evolutionary perspective throughout, it has a small but lovely gallery explaining Darwinian natural selection, its principles, and its importance. There was also a replica of Darwin’s notebook with his famous branching diagram of speciation. Pictures on Flickr next month, probably, if not sooner.

    Was it a real replica or one of those table-top-tablet virtual replicas such as the one that replicates the Dodgson’s original “Alice” notebook at the British National Library.

    Virtual replica? What’s that?

    I guess it’s an image on a computer screen. Don?
