  1. The occurrence, generality, and causes of large-scale evolutionary trends—directional changes over long periods of time—have been the subject of intensive study and debate in evolutionary science. Large-scale ...

  2. Darwin believed that evolution generally occurred through a series of small, gradual changes. This proposal was counter-intuitive to many people because it seemed likely that “transitional” forms would not sur...

    Authors: Deborah A. McLennan
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:53
  3. Many students reject evolutionary theory, whether or not they adequately understand basic evolutionary concepts. We explore the hypothesis that accepting evolution is related to understanding the nature of sci...

    Authors: Tania Lombrozo, Anastasia Thanukos and Michael Weisberg
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:61
  4. A central obstacle to accepting evolution, both among students and the general public, is the idea that evolution is “just a theory,” where “theory” is understood in a pejorative sense as something conjectural...

    Authors: Glenn Branch and Louise S. Mead
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:56
  5. A longstanding debate in evolutionary biology concerns whether species diverge gradually through time or by rapid punctuational bursts at the time of speciation. The theory of punctuated equilibrium states tha...

    Authors: Chris Venditti and Mark Pagel
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:49
  6. The scientific study of evolution in Chile has experienced periods of diversification and stasis, depending upon the social and political context at different times. In the eighteenth century, most of the natu...

    Authors: Rodrigo Medel

  7. Authors: Niles Eldredge and Greg Eldredge
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:44
  8. Modern evolutionary research has much to contribute to medical research and health care practices. Conversely, evolutionary biologists are tapping into the rapidly expanding databases of medical genomic inform...

    Authors: Ernie Hood and Kristin P. Jenkins
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:36
  9. Learning about biological evolution presents particular challenges for students. Barriers to learning come in the form of students’ prior conceptions that conflict with the scientific perspective of biological...

    Authors: Gale M. Sinatra, Sarah K. Brem and E. Margaret Evans
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:37
  10. Charles Darwin sketched his first evolutionary tree in 1837, and trees have remained a central metaphor in evolutionary biology up to the present. Today, phylogenetics—the science of constructing and evaluatin...

    Authors: T. Ryan Gregory
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:35
  11. A multidisciplinary approach to teaching was adopted in two art courses by employing concepts of evolutionary biology with a focus on the Precambrian Era. This knowledge served to help students create original...

    Authors: Bruno Borsari, Robin Richardson, Anne Scott Plummer, Mary Coughlan and Jennifer Anderson
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:28
  12. In this article, we describe an 8- to 10-day inquiry safari designed for middle/high school students to investigate hominid evolution using replica skulls of extant and extinct vertebrates. Students begin the ...

    Authors: Norman Thomson and Seri Chapman Beall
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:26
  13. Evolutionary studies suggest that the potential for rapid emergence of novel host–parasite associations is a “built-in feature” of the complex phenomenon that is Darwinian evolution. The current Emerging Infec...

    Authors: Daniel R. Brooks and Eric P. Hoberg
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2007 1:22
  14. Authors: Niles Eldredge and Gregory Eldredge
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2007 1:20
  15. In a widely cited essay published in the journal Science (Aug. 2006), it was stated that in Germany a large majority of adults are convinced of evolution. Based on a new poll, I document that this conclusion is q...

    Authors: U. Kutschera
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2007 1:17
  16. Ecologic systems, which are involved mainly in the processing of energy and materials, are actually nested one inside another—they are simultaneously parts and wholes. This fundamental hierarchical organizatio...

    Authors: William Miller III
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2007 1:16
  17. Science teachers are on the front lines of the evolution wars, not only in prominent court cases but also in everyday classroom situations. Owing both to religious opposition to and common misconceptions about...
