BIO2011 Perspectives in Evolution


Evolution is a term charged with both emotion and controversy. Too often, discussions surrounding this topic don’t focus on what evolution is, and what it is not, from a truly scientific perspective. This course begins with an extended study of relevant topics in geology, such as plate tectonics, to create a solid underpinning for the study of evolution. It continues with a look at the ideas of Charles Darwin and the evidence of evolution, particularly the fossil record and the connections with genetics. The first unit explores the human evolution fossil record and the numerous controversies involved with interpreting those discoveries. Included throughout the course is an emphasis on how the discipline of science works in general and how geology and evolution are prime examples of the workings of this process in particular. Non-scientific interpretations of the evidence are occasionally highlighted for contrast. Credits: 3.000
