Annual Darwin Lecture at the University of Toronto

The Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and the Royal Ontario Museum present the Annual Darwin Lecture: Darwin, Lizards, and Evolutionary Biology in the 21st Century. The speaker is Jonathan Losos and the lecture takes place tomorrow, Thursday, February 7, 2013 in the Earth Science Centre Auditorium, Room 1050, at 8pm.
Brief Description: Modern day evolutionary biologists combine DNA studies with field experiments that can detect Darwinian evolution in real time. Lizards are an ideal subject for such research.


  1. Jonathan is a very engaging and stimulating lecturer. His lab at Harvard (and earlier at Washington University) has produced a stream of excellent evolutionary biologists who are very involved in applying computational, statistical, and phylogenetic methods to field studies, mostly in lizards.

  2. I remember arguing with evolutionists about studies showing plasticity was important or dominant in explaining change in some lizards on some island recently.
    Welcome to creationism and the change was not from selection on mutation.
