  7. During the first half of the twentieth century, many scientists considered viruses the smallest living entities and primitive life forms somehow placed between the inert world and highly evolved cells. The dev...

    Authors: Purificación López-García and David Moreira
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:441
  8. Historically, ideas on the origins of life have been mingled with evolutionary explanations. Darwin avoided discussing the origin of the very first species in public although he acknowledged the possibility th...

  14. In an effort to understand how to improve student learning about evolution, a focus of science education research has been to document and address students’ naive ideas. Less research has investigated how stud...

    Authors: Elizabeth P. Beggrow and Ross H. Nehm
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:432
  15. To explain the evolution of complex organisms by random mutation, drift, and selection is not a trivial task. This becomes obvious if we imagine an organism in which most genes affect most traits and all mutat...

    Authors: Mihaela Pavlicev and Günter P. Wagner
