The world is getting ready to celebrate the 200th birthday of one of the most influential biologists — some would say THE most influential biologist — ever born. Charles Darwin revolutionized the way scientists think about how life on this planet evolved.

NPR's Joe Palca is in England to prepare stories for the Darwin bicentenary, and he chats with host Liane Hansen about some of the preparations and NPR's upcoming coverage.
