Darwin and the Tree of Life

The course will cover Charles Darwin's life and writings and the controversy arising from his theory of evolution. This is followed by review of how modern science has provided support for the theory from multiple independent angles. The tree of life concept is visited, with examples on how it is used to serve our many everyday needs ranging from nature classification, discoveries, control of diseases, criminology, and the modification or creation of new species. It concludes with a look at ourselves as part of the tree of life.
