    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:351
  12. Technology seems to follow a different type of evolutionary dynamic when compared with biological systems. As pointed out by Francois Jacob, evolution takes place by means of extensive tinkering and does not f...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:348
  14. Natural selection is an important mechanism in the unifying biological theory of evolution, but many undergraduate students struggle to learn this concept. Students enter introductory biology courses with pred...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:343
  15. Today there is growing interest in material culture studies among a wide range of social and biological scientists. Researchers recognize that some concepts drawn from biology can be useful in understanding as...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:347
  16. Ever since the publication of The Origin of Species, anthropologists and archaeologists have been in turns enchanted and repulsed by the idea that cultural diversity can be explained by a Darwinian model of desce...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:345
  17. Excepting some specific efforts, most of the mainstream debate around the Americas’ settlement has been directed by specialists dealing with partial evidence. Thus, discussions have been confined to particular...

  19. Protein evolution is not a random process. Views which attribute randomness to molecular change, deleterious nature to single-gene mutations, insufficient geological time, or population size for molecular impr...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:329
  20. Since intelligent design (ID) advocates claimed the ubiquitous mouse trap as an example of systems that cannot have evolved, mouse trap history is doubly relevant to studying material culture. On the one hand,...
