What is the evidence for evolution?

All living things, from humans to the bacteria in your gut and the trees outside evolved from a single ancestor around 3.5 billion years ago. Evolution is the only thing that allows us to make sense of the bewilderingly rich diversity of organisms, perhaps 10 million species, that we see around us today. “nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution” according to Theodosius Dobzhansky. Who on earth was he, how did he rescue Darwin and why did Darwin train as a Church of England priest?

These bewildering questions will be answered in this webinar, with the opportunity for questions of your own at the end. Use this session to practice your note-taking skills too!
