Evolution (Summer Session 2)

July 10, 2017 - August 20, 2017

This course draws on the Museum's long-standing leadership in the fields of paleontology, geology, systematics, and molecular biology to tell a modern story of evolution. Students will learn why evolution is the fundamental concept that underlies all life sciences and how it contributes to advances in medicine, public health, and conservation. Students will gain a solid understanding of the basic mechanisms of evolution—including the process of speciation—and how these systems have given rise to the great diversity of life in the world today. We'll also look at how new ideas, discoveries and technologies are modifying prior evolutionary concepts.
