Evolution

All the sciences, from astronomy to biology, have worked together to discover the processes that create the current state of our universe, our world, and ourselves.  These evolutionary proocesses define the origin of the atoms that make up all matter, the origin of stars and planets, and the development of life itself.  The University of Arizona College of Science is proud to present these seven lectures.  Each will illustrate this vision of evolution and demonstrate how we know that evolution represents reality.
