A talk by Professor John Parker, former Director of the University Botanic Gardens, exploring the research and teaching programme of Professor John Henslow to establish what Charles Darwin gained during his 3 years in Cambridge and how it shaped his future achievements.

  • Henslow had his own ideas about species change and recommended Darwin for the Beagle voyage
  • Could Henslow have had a greater influence on Darwin’s theory of evolution than he is given credit for?
  • Without Henslow, would there have been ‘An the Origin of Species’?
