All living things, from humans to the bacteria in your gut and the trees outside your window, evolved from a single common ancestor that lived 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. Indeed, “Nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution” according to Theodosius Dobzhansky. Who on Earth was Theodosius Dobzhansky, and how did he rescue Darwin? And why did Darwin train to be a Church of England priest?

These and other bewildering questions will be answered in this webinar, presented by Professor Matt Wills. Milner Centre for Evolution, Dept of Biology & Biochemistry, which will also offer you the chance to ask some questions of your own.
