Watson and Crick with their DNA model

^BCOMMERCIAL USE REQUIRES CLEARANCE.^bThe discoverers of the structure of DNA. James Watson (b.1928) at left and Francis Crick (1916-2004), with their model of part of a DNA molecule in 1953. Crick & Watson met at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, in 1951. Their work on the structure of DNA was performed with a knowledge of Chargaff's ratios of the bases in DNA and some access to the X-ray crystallography of Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin at King's College London. Combining all of this work led to the deduction that DNA exists as a double helix. Crick, Watson and Wilkins shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, Franklin having died of cancer in 1958. Photographed in the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK, in May 1953

British Empire world map, 19th century

British Empire world map. This world map shows the 19th-century British Empire (pink) and its indigenous peoples. Five illustrations (clockwise from upper left) show the people of Australia, North America, southern Africa, Europe and Asia. Two tables (top left and top right) list the imperial possessions by area and population, with the totals being over 7 million square miles and nearly 165 million people. Some years of acquisition are also shown. This map was produced in the late 1850s by the Scottish cartographer John Bartholomew (1831-1893). Africa includes the 1856 route taken by the Scottish explorer David Livingstone

Red squirrel Featured Print

Red squirrel

Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) feeding. The red squirrel is Britain's only native squirrel. It is widely distributed throughout Europe. In Britain it has been in decline for the last 100 years and the UK population is estimated to be about 160, 000 with the majority in Scotland. This decline is mainly due to the introduction of the grey squirrel (Sciurius carolinensis) from North America in 1876. Competition and the spread of a virus by the grey squirrel has led to its dominance. In England, the red squirrel is currently outnumbered by the grey squirrel by about 66:1. If the current rate of decline continues the red squirrel is expected to be extinct in the UK in 20-30 years. Photographed in Northumberland National Park, UK
