"Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution"
Theodosius Dobzhansky, 1973
These words hold true today. Unfortunately, many people have heard of evolution, but many fail to grasp the details. Conceptually, it is deceptively simple, but it takes students often a considerablke time before they fully grasp its mecahnisms and it consequences.
In this series of lessons, I will cover all major aspects of evolution.
- What is evolution?
- Evidence for evolution (DNA/fossils/...)
- Mechanisms (Natural selection/Genetic Drift/mutation/...)
- Biodiversity (species/genetic/communities)
- Evo-devo (evolutionary development)
- Macro evolution
- Social implications
- Creationism-evolution debate
