FYSP 121 - Everyday Evolution

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS, WINT

Dobzhansky’s famous quote, “Nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution,” suggests that organic evolution is widely appreciated and understood. However, many think evolution happened only long ago, and others think evolution is simply “survival of the fittest.” Using non-technical books, such as Why We Get Sick and The Botany of Desire, we will explore the complexities of evolution as central to everyday natural processes.
