THE FORCES OF EVOLUTION — by Dr. Mindy Walker

THE FORCES OF

EVOLUTION

Evolution is all about natural selection, right?  That's all Darwin talked about, right?  And nothing much has been added to the picture since Darwin's day, right?

Biology Professor Mindy Walker will enlighten us on the fuller picture of evolution's mechanisms, the agents of change, both from what Darwin discovered and from what biologists have been discovering since then. What do we now know about what drives evolution?

Says Mindy:  "One of the most common misconceptions about evolution is that it is caused by a single force, Darwinian
natural selection.  There are, however, five mechanisms of evolution; and I will discuss each of these and its role in changing gene frequencies in populations over time."

Lots of solid info, lots of opportunity for your questions and comments, too.

      That sounds like a great plan Thomas. I couldn't not make this one and would have loved to see her lecture on YouTube. If she does it again I won't miss it.
