In 1953 Watson and Crick, of Cambridge University, published the first big breakthrough in our understanding of how genetic variation works on evolution. Before this, we knew that there is genetic variability, and that it is the driving force of evolution, but we didn't know...

Lets put it simply: Predators eat other animals for food.Predators prey on other animals at all stages in their lives, from those who feed on eggs in their nests to the great hunters who track fully grown animals to the opportunistic who prey on...

Lamarck is an almost forgotten, pre-Darwinian evolutionist. Born Jean-Baptise Antoine de Monet in 1744, he used 'Chevalier de Lamarck' as a pen name. He wrote extensively on botany as well as his findings on the classification of animals. His was a brilliant mind and he...

Many different futures can be predicted for our race from the information we have concerning human evolution in the past. We know that animals such as ourselves adapt physically to fare better within their habitat or niche. So what we have to look at here...

"Man will never fly"We all know now that this statement is patently untrue. Yet there are many that still cling to the believe that the evolution of the wing by chance is impossible. Will they be proven wrong as well?The evolution of birds is...

Out of all the creatures that live on this planet, the human species has had the greatest impact on all other life forms and the planet itself. Ironically most of this change has occurred in the last few hundred years, which is really just a...

Some who have given their allegiance to the theory of evolution have boldly claimed that the evidences for the theory are actually proofs of it, and that those who disagree are either people with extremely low IQs, or religious fanatics. Of course, this is naive...

In assessing the future of human evolution, we have already accepted that evolution exists and is an on going process. Evolution plays a central role in the development of all living things. From the primordial soup, life on earth has evolved in a systematic and...

The most important factor in the evolution of species is genetic variation. DNA polymers are practically infinitesimal, but still can contain over 200 million base pairings. Even with this many different pairings, a single genetic mutation; a change in these base pairings; can manifest itself...
