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

"There are several reasons that I love My eCoach. The largest one is that it has a locker where I can store what I have created and find it later. I have made a whole bunch of things online and then forgotten where they are and sometimes even that they exist. In My eCoach I can go to the Locker and find the projects that I made in the past and am sometimes surprised at what I find!

I have also met long-term friends through My eCoach who I communicate with in other ways. I know I have not used most of My eCoach to its capacity and it is really amazing the options that it does give you."
