Introduction to Evolution

December 03, 2012 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Desmond Campus

This course will touch on some of the prevailing ideas of the nature of life in the early 19th century and how this contrasted with the new ideas of evolution. We will trace the early development of Darwin’s Theory during his four-year voyage on the Beagle, collecting data from around the world. We will examine the evidence for evolution: geological evolution, the fossil record, embryology, biochemistry, and genetics. We will also examine the theories for the origin of life and trace how life changed from single cell to multi-cellular organisms and the evolution of man.
