Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads

Open to media only

Including a hunt for fossils of stickleback fish & a discussion of evolution and religion.

Despite immense advances in evidence and understanding, there remains a societal struggle with the acceptance of our biological history and the evolutionary process.

HHMI investigators Sean Carroll and David Kingsley will explore new discoveries that have transformed our understanding of how animals, plants, and humans develop and evolve. In four lectures and a panel discussion with 200 Washington, D.C., area high school students, the scientists will discuss how Charles Darwin's fundamental concepts about evolution ignited a revolution in biology that continues to this day.

The lectures will be Webcast live to classrooms around the world.

The great extent of shared developmental machinery reveals a deep common ancestry for living forms and makes it possible to discover general rules of evolution from highly detailed studies of diverse organisms. The complete picture of human evolution includes new information emerging from fossil records, genetics, comparative physiology, and developmental biology.

Lecture 1: Endless Forms Most Beautiful
