"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.

  1. What is evolution?
  2. Evidence for evolution (DNA/fossils/...)
  3. Mechanisms (Natural selection/Genetic Drift/mutation/...)
  4. Speciation
  5. Phylogenetics
  6. Biodiversity (species/genetic/communities)
  7. Genotype-phenotype
  8. Coevolution
  9. Evo-devo (evolutionary development)
  10. Macro evolution
  11. Social implications
  12. Creationism-evolution debate

Please contact me for specific details of what I cover, and I can tailor the lessons to your needs.

Are you a visual learner or are you more an auditory learner. Or maybe kinesthetic (=hands on)? Are you logical or intuitive? I optimize my teaching depending on what way works best for you as a student.
