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

"I founded SAV school to educate poor family children of the rural area of Nepal seeing some parents unwilling to educate their children and some parents willing to send their children to teach them english. I've been focusing my strategy to bring the poor children to school and educate them in English medium. Parents love to hear their children speaking English. English is our second language. I look forward to sharing and connecting in My eCoach
