In this lesson, our instructor Bryan Cardella gives an introduction on evolution. He discusses the scientists behind the theory of evolution, Darwin's voyage, and natural selection summary. He then goes on to explain the evidence for evolution, patterns of evolution, gradualism vs. puncated equilibrium, modes of selection, sexual selection, natural selection, reproductive isolation, speciation, adaptive radiation, Hardy-Weinberg Theorem, and microevolution.

This books helps you develop a deeper understanding of biology by making connections visually across chapters and building the scientific skills needed for success in upper-level courses. It features: new make connections Figures pull together content from different chapters visually, helping you see “big picture” relationships, new scientific skills exercises in every chapter use real data to build key skills needed for biology, including data analysis, graphing, experimental design, and math skills, and new examples show you how our ability to sequence DNA and proteins rapidly and inexpensively is transforming every subfield of biology.
