The link between bipedalism and increased brain size in hominid evolution
By: Xauri'El Zwaan
Bipedalism and brain size are two of humanity's most distinctive adaptations. Among close relatives such as chimpanzees and gorillas which are able to walk bipedally, we stand out as being the most efficient users of bipedal motion. Our bodies have evolved to make it not...

Evolution is only an outdated theory to those who never supported it in the first place. To a non-believer any theory would be quick to agitate at the first mention of it, much like Jehovah witnesses to an atheist's door, it isn't well received. For...
The evolution of pandas
By: Jeffrey Graf
Is a panda a closer relative to a bear or a raccoon? This question has perplexed biologists for over a century, and has continued to perplex scientists decades after the case seems to have been, somewhat hopefully, declared closed[ 1]. After much difficulty in detailing...
Evolution
By: William Mataba
All life, and subsequently all organisms, evolve according to the dictates of their surrounding environment; that is of course, if the surrounding environment changes over a time period sufficient to allow the organism to evolve. An immediate catastrophe, and by immediate I mean something happening...
The evolution of dinosaurs
By: Brittany Welch
The evolution of the dinosaurs begins with the DevonianPeriod, close to four hundred million years ago. The occurrence of the animals migrating form water to land occurred during the Devonian Period. Animals did this in search of food sources which have yet to be exploited...

It's important in any discussion of biological evolution to distinguish between microevolution and macroevolution. Creationists readily concede the existence of microevolution - changes in characteristics within a species over time. They realized that it would be next to impossible to explain how farmers were able...
Evolution versus thermal conductivity
By: Jordan Cropper
In the universe, a large amount of liberated energy (that is, energy not tied up as matter), exists as heat. Most energy eventually filters down to heat, after being transformed through all its various states. For example, if I use the chemical energy stored in...
Is evolution an outdated theory?
By: Ian Paulsen
Is Evolution an outdated theory? The answer is No! The main problem I think people have, especially here in the United State of America, is that they don't actually understand what evolution is. All evolution is "descent with modification". Think of it this way, the...
The evolution of the dog
By: Pat Gray
There are four general theories on how the modern dog evolved: 1) from wolves tamed through human intervention 2) wolves "taming" themselves over a long association with humans 3) wolves dividing into distinct populations of wolves and proto-dogs through scavenging activities 4) modern dogs evolving...

There have been many studies done on population genetics and human evolution and migration in the past 20 or so years. Tracing back the early human population's demographic history all the way to the time before our ancestors moved out of Africa has been one...
