Sundays 10:00 am in Room 305
In this intriguing book, evolutionary biologist Scott Solomon draws on the explosion of discoveries in recent years to examine the future evolution of our species. Combining knowledge of our past with current trends, Solomon offers convincing evidence that evolutionary forces still affect us today. But how will modernization — including longer lifespans, changing diets, global travel, and widespread use of medicine and contraceptives—affect our evolutionary future?
