  5. The eclipse of Darwinism began to end in the 1980s and hangs in the balance today. We need an Extended Synthesis, using “extension” metaphorically. We must extend back in time to recover important aspects of D...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:301
  8. Mass media has always been a prominent source of science information for the general public, and more so than academic journals. The diversification of media with specialized online outlets and the participato...

    Authors: Maryanne L. Fisher, Daniel J. Kruger and Justin R. Garcia
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2011 4:302
  9. By simulating evolution through performance, students become physically, as well as mentally, engaged in thinking about evolutionary concepts. This instructional strategy redirects tension around the subject t...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:292
  13. Human beings are predisposed to think of evolution as teleological—i.e., having a purpose or directive principle—and the ways scientists talk about natural selection can feed this predisposition. This work exa...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:293
  15. The University of Arizona’s Tree of Life Web Project organizes information about the biological taxa on the model of the tree of life itself. This creates intuitive and informative pathways for browsing. The P...

    Authors: Adam M. Goldstein
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:288
  16. High school biology is typically taught with an emphasis on human biology. The human body is broken down into distinct systems without regard to the origins of its parts. As a result, students are left with th...

  17. Authors: Niles Eldredge and Greg Eldredge
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:291
  18. Giambattista Brocchi’s (1814) monograph (see Dominici, Evo Edu Outreach, this issue, 2010) on the Tertiary fossils of the Subappenines in Italy—and their relation to the living molluscan fauna—contains a theoreti...

    Authors: Stefano Dominici and Niles Eldredge
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:280
  19. While numerous studies address college students’ (typically biology majors) perceptions of evolution, research on how students from a range of majors view intelligent design (ID) has not been conducted. In thi...

  20. It has been over 50 years since Willi Hennig proposed a new method for determining genealogical relationships among species, which he called phylogenetic systematics. Many people, however, still approach the m...

    Authors: Deborah A. McLennan
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:273
  21. The Tree of Life is the result of the interplay of changes in information and speciation. Almost 100 years after publication of Darwin’s Origin, the inception of Phylogenetic Systematics has resulted in a revolut...

    Authors: Edward O. Wiley
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:279
  22. The Italian geologist Giambattista Brocchi (1771–1826) is presented as a key figure in the historical period preceding young Charles Darwin’s first work on transmutational theory while on the Beagle. The brief...

    Authors: Stefano Dominici
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:270
  23. The future of the world’s biodiversity involves preservation of individual species and, more importantly, preservation of the natural process by which the biosphere is populated. Inherited history allows speci...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:266

    Authors: Richard P. Meisel
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2010 3:254
  26. At the heart of debates among creationists and evolutionists are questions about scientific integrity and rigor. Creationists often justify their rejection of biological evolution by claiming that the methodol...
