Symposium: Evolution Makes Sense of Biology

Symposium: Evolution Makes Sense of Biology

Chicago, IL

Symposium organized by NCSE at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science with Eugenie C. Scott as the Moderator. The Symposium takes to heart Theodosious Dobzhansky’s maxim that “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.” The symposium features preeminent scientists’ reflections on how the concept of common ancestry explains why things are the way they are in their respective fields.
