Evolution 101

Evolution 101 provides the nuts-and-bolts on the patterns and mechanisms of evolution. Biological evolution, simply put, is descent with modification. This definition encompasses small-scale evolution (changes in gene frequency in a population from one generation to the next) and large-scale evolution (the descent of different species from a common ancestor over many generations). Evolution helps us to understand the history of life. You can explore the following sections:
  • Definition
  • Patterns
  • Mechanisms
  • Speciation
  • Macroevolution
  • Big Issues
