- Charles Darwin was right when he wrote that people with an understanding “of the great leading principles of mathematics… seem to have an extra sense” (F. Darwin 1905 [Darwin F, editor. (1905) The life and letters of Charles Darwin. New York: Appleton. Available: http://pages.britishlibrary.net/charles.darwin/texts/letters/letters1_02.html via the Internet.]). Today's biologists increasingly recognize that appropriate mathematics can help interpret any kind of data. In this sense, mathematics is biology's next microscope, only better.
