A collection of classroom lessons to help high school biology teachers more effectively teach basic concepts in the areas of evolution and the nature of science. They were developed and tested during nine years of summer institutes by biology teachers from across the nation. The resources include books, websites, papers and articles relating to the teaching of evolution and the nature of science, and sample units, strategies and tips for teaching these topics.

This site has lecture notes and other material for the undergraduate course on Evolution at New York University taught by Prof. David H. A. Fitch. The course covers key concepts in Darwin's "Origin of Species", the non-random mechanism of natural selection and how adaptations are produced and can be recognized, evolutionary genetics, the process of speciation, phylogenetic analysis of relationships among organisms, applications of phylogenetic analysis (biogeography, genomics), evolution of development, and mass extinctions. The lecture notes are meant to supplement lectures and readings, but have been used by many people to study for Graduate Record Exams, get ideas for term paper topics, etc. Questions or suggestions are welcome: david.fitch@nyu.edu


Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) Picture: Copyright © 1997 Bill and Carol Lofton Q&A What is evolution? Biological evolution is the change that species (kinds of living things) undergo over time. More precisely, it is the change in the gene pools of living populations of species which occurs over time. A gene is a hereditary unit that can be passed on unaltered for many generations. A gene pool is the set of all genes in a species or population. What do you mean by “Evolution H ...


Evolutionary Theory We see evolution as based on the trial-and-error process of variation and natural selection of systems at all levels of complexity. The name of 'natural selection' comes from the Darwinian theory of biological evolution, which distinguishes "natural" selection from "artificial" selection, where specific features are retained or eliminated depending on a goal or intention (e.g. the objective of a cattle breeder who would like to have cows that produce more milk). The "impli ...

COSMIC ANCESTRY | Quick Guide | Next | by Brig Klyce | All Rights Reserved Introduction: More Than Panspermia What'sNEW Cosmic Ancestry is a new theory pertaining to evolution and the origin of life on Earth. It holds that life on Earth was seeded from space, and that life's evolution to higher forms depends on genetic programs that come from space. (It accepts the Darwinian account of evolution that does not require new genetic programs.) It is a wholly scientific, testable theory for which e ...


ISLAND BIOGEOGRAPHY AND EVOLUTION: SOLVING A PHYLOGENETIC PUZZLE USING MOLECULAR GENETICS R.P. FILSON PREFACE ISLAND BIOGEOGRAPHY and Evolution is an activity about the evolution of three species of lizards on the Canary Islands. It is designed for high school biology students. Its purpose is to demonstrate to students that evolutionary problems are complex, and solutions may involve data from various disciplines of science. First, students must arrive at different phylogenetic solutions usi ...


Introduction If you're listening today, I heard Jeannie of course, to begin with, talking about creationism and evolution. I suspect that people who are teaching in high schools are very much familiar with that particular problem and whether or not you're even allowed to talk about evolution or whether you're supposed to present creationism alongside it or whatever. Something that you might not be so aware of is what's happening in universities, at least in anthropology, problems lik ...

In warm memory of Tero Sand and Bob Schadewald Talk.origins is a Usenet newsgroup devoted to the discussion and debate of biological and physical origins. Most discussions in the newsgroup center on the creation/evolution controversy, but other topics of discussion include the origin of life, geology, biology, catastrophism, cosmology and theology. The Talk.Origins Archive is a collection of articles and essays, most of which have appeared in talk.origins at one time or another. The pr ...
