Every February it's our intention to celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday and our relatedness to all other living lineages, with a Phylum Feast composed of as great a diversity of species as possible. Because we tend to be fairly scatter-brained and unfocused, we welcome collaborators who can suggest that the planning for such an event begin more than 4 hours in advance. - fred and Aleta.
