    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:446
  12. The origin of life on Earth remains a mystery, but the question can still be approached with scientific rigor. Identifying life’s origins requires the definition of life itself, which has been described as a s...

    Authors: Andrew D. Ellington
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:440
  13. Phylogenetic reconstruction, divergence times, and population genetics are critical concepts for a complete understanding of evolution. Unfortunately, students generally lack “tree-thinking” skills and are oft...

    Authors: Luana S. Maroja and Jason A. Wilder
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:436
  14. Darwin suggested that all life on Earth could be phylogenetically related. Modern biology has confirmed Darwin’s extraordinary insight; the existence of a universal genetic code is just one of many evidences o...

    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:444
  15. 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
  16. 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...

    Authors: Juli Peretó and Jesús Català
    Citation: Evolution: Education and Outreach 2012 5:442
  17. Natural selection driving adaptive changes is a powerful and intuitive explanation for the evolution of the living world around us. Evolution at the molecular level, however, is chiefly ruled by random genetic...
