Abstract

It is fitting that the Iowa Academy of Science should, in some way, spread on the minutes of its proceedings, its estimate of what science owes to the work of Charles Darwin, the centenary of whose birth occurred on the 12th of February, 1909. Darwin's contribution to science was two-fold: in the first place it consisted of additions, the result of research, additions made directly to the body of the knowledge of his time: secondly, it consisted in a singular impulse to natural history study, an impulse destined to be long-lasting as science itself.
