Introduction to Evolutionary Biology

Where do species come from? Do organisms evolve?
Charles Darwin was only 22 years old when he set off on HMS Beagle. Even though the evidence he gathered would transform our understanding of biology, the theory of evolution originated long before Darwin.
In this introductory lecture, we trace the history of evolutionary thought to the present day.
