  1. Evolutionary biology owes much to Charles Darwin, whose discussions of common descent and natural selection provide the foundations of the discipline. But evolutionary biology has expanded well beyond its foun...

    Authors: Eugenie C. Scott and Glenn Branch
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2009 2:111
  2. The case of industrial melanism in the peppered moth has been used as a teaching example of Darwinian natural selection in action for half a century. However, over the last decade, this case has come under att...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 2:107
  3. The controversy around evolution, creationism, and intelligent design resides in a historical struggle between scientific knowledge and popular belief. Four hundred seventy-six students (biology majors n = 237, n...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 2:96
  4. College students whose recollections of their high school biology courses included creationism were significantly more likely to invoke creationism-based answers on questions derived from the Material Acceptan...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 2:97
  5. When we teach evolution to our students, we tend to focus on “constructive” evolution, the processes which lead to the development of novel or modified structures. Most biology students are familiar with the s...

  6. Authors: Gregory Eldredge and Niles Eldredge
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:81
  7. Evidence of detailed brain morphology is illustrated and described for 400-million-year-old fossil skulls and braincases of early vertebrates (placoderm fishes). Their significance is summarized in the context...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:87
  8. The visual organs of insects are known for their impressive evolutionary conservation. Compound eyes built from ommatidia with four cone cells are now accepted to date back to the last common ancestor of insec...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:86
  9. The origin of complex biological structures has long been a subject of interest and debate. Two centuries ago, natural explanations for their occurrence were considered inconceivable. However, 150 years of sci...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:76
  10. Cities large and small have a treasure trove of building stones both local as well as imported from various regions of the country as well as foreign sources. Many of them contain fossils which are easily avai...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:75
  11. The ability to see colors is not universal in the animal kingdom. Those animals that can detect differences in the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum glean valuable sensory information about their env...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:88
  12. In his considerations of “organs of extreme perfection,” Charles Darwin described the evidence that would be necessary to support the evolutionary origin of the eye, namely, demonstration of the existence of “...

    Authors: Trevor D. Lamb, Edward N. Pugh Jr. and Shaun P. Collin
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:91
  13. Despite data and theory from comparative anatomy, embryology, molecular biology, genomics, and evolutionary developmental biology, antievolutionists continue to present the eye as an example of a structure too...

    Authors: Andrew J. Petto and Louise S. Mead
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:82
  14. Anyone who has skimmed a high school biology textbook will be familiar with the iconic examples of homology that seem inseparable from any explanation of the term: the limb structure of four-legged animals, th...

    Authors: Anastasia Thanukos
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:80
  15. For over 100 years, molluscan eyes have been used as an example of convergent evolution and, more recently, as a textbook example of stepwise evolution of a complex lens eye via natural selection. Yet, little ...

    Authors: Jeanne M. Serb and Douglas J. Eernisse
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2008 1:84
  16. This paper critically reviews and characterizes the student's causal-explanatory understanding; this is done as a step toward explicating the problematic of evolution education as it concerns the cognitive dif...
