The theory of evolution of Charles Darwin and the influence of his thinking on today’s scientific advances is reflected by the "Darwin Now" travelling exhibition, inaugurated on Thursday in this city.

Sponsored by the British Council, the exhibition includes the research work carried out by scientists at the United Kingdom, and reflects the importance of the work of the eminent scientist for today’s science.

Ciro Estrada, Public Relations and Communication consultant with the Center for Technological Management and Information, the event’s venue, pointed out that the exhibition is made up by some 15 posters of great educational value.

He added that these posters highlight the life and work of the English naturalist, how he developed his theory and why it occupies a privileged position in fields like biology and other contemporary sciences.

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin in 2009 and 150 years after the publication of his research work on the origin of species, the exhibition has toured several countries, like Greece, the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Since April 2009, the posters have been exhibited at institutions and museums like the National Capitol, the Felipe Poey Museum, the Humboldt Center, EXPOCUBA and the National Aquarium, and this year it will be enjoyed by residents in several eastern Cuban provinces.
