The link between human evolution and migration has been an integral part of our history, going back to the earliest recorded times of our species' existence. As we became more intelligent and increased the use of man-made tools and animal transport, we increased the means...

Paleontology and evolution are two steps, but by no means the only steps, in trying to discover the wonders of life on earth. They help us get a better perspective not only on our place in the grand web of life, but that life is...

Are humans going to keep evolving? And will they evolve in a way that we see to be desirable? Evolution is often seen as the changes over time leading an organism to become more complex and more worthwhile, as is seen in Darwin's survival of...

"Where" usually refers to a place, but can on occasion also refer to a time. As in the question: "Where did it all begin?" Each new road evolution takes has its own beginning, its own time and its own place, so where do we...
