Students Skype with Jerry Coyne
In EFB Professor Rebecca Rundell's Evolution course (EFB 311), 170 students had a live Skype conversation with renowned evolutionary biologist and author Dr. Jerry Coyne. Jerry is the author of the recent book "Why Evolution is True," which the students read in the class. Students asked Jerry a wide range of questions, on topics ranging from species concepts, the nature of viruses, endosymbioses' role in evolution, the evolution of homosexuality, colonization of vertebrates on islands, to the origins of life and the creationism debate. The discussion was lively and stimulating and enjoyed by all. More information on Jerry Coyne can be found HEREOffice of Communications
