Concept

Franzen et al's (2009) paper describing a very early and important primate fossil embodies the excitement inherent in discovery biology. The paper utilizes enough breath of technique to be of interest to biologists at many levels. The paper and all of it's supporting materials are accessible online.

The site uses a CC-BY license which effectively empowers educators to take ownership of their teaching :-) and reconfigure and remix the resources in innovate ways. Sharing knowledge and resources is what education is all about! - Wayne Macintosh

I propose developing teaching materials aimed at a general biology college audience. Others may choose to develop materials at other levels also.


Lets take a new route...giving a new look to this project!

i really don't know what the person who started off this project had in his mind..i mean how he actually wanted to shape it up...but i am going to try....giving it a look which perhaps everyone would like...so lets walk together friends..........

Evolution

lets start from something very simple...very basic..but really important,...can we define this word called Evolution??? am looking here for as many ...suggestions as possible...older ones or new thoughts.....am waiting friends! i' ll contribute from my side that is for sure.

  • Evolution can be broadly defined as change in gene frequencies between generations.
