edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Expand : Expand on reception; lead should eventually be a little longer.
  • Infobox : Date of publication
  • Verify : Ideally provide primary sources for quotes from Desmond and Moore.
  • Other : Add all the figures and (better) title page(s) to Commons; harmonize with parent biographical article Darwin from Insectivorous Plants to Worms (add any missing information from there and perhaps shorten that section somewhat, at least where material is repeated here).

Synopsis section[edit]

Alas I seem to have lost my synopsis notes that I was very slow about adding. I will post a synopsis if I ever find them, but I fear I shall not. Richard001 (talk) 00:39, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Found them! Will post something soon then. Richard001 (talk) 08:41, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

More important than Origin of Species?[edit]

I've heard this a couple of times now, eg. here: http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/darwin-publishes-work-on-mold-and-worms . That article isn't referenced, so I'm not sure if this comes from a misquote, or a misreading of a primary source, but it would definitely be worth including this info if anyone could find a primary source. --naught101 (talk) 06:51, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
