On Darwin and the Darwinian Mechanism of Natural Selection
A Faculty Senate/Carney Library Brown Bag Lecture
Dr. Guillermo Paz-y-Mino C from the Department of Biology will present “On Darwin and the Darwinian Mechanism of Natural Selection.” Since the publication of The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, in 1859, Darwinian evolution has been scrutinized experimentally; today Darwinism is accepted by the scientific community. Dr.Paz-y-Mino C. will discuss the scientific significance of Darwinism, the marvelous simplicity of the mechanism of natural selection as driving force of evolution, and the need to advocate for science literacy, particularly the theory of evolution.
