2nd February 2009 – Evolution Head to Tail

Son of SciBar – Evolution Head to Tail

Dave Thompson, founder of Knutsford SciBar, stood in for Mike Dunne* who was planned to introduce us to The Hiper Project at Rutherford Labs but was thwarted by heavy snow over much of southern England.

Dave gave a Son of SciBar style talk on evolution from the neo-Darwinian theory through the selfish gene to the workings of DNA, during which he made an impassioned defence of the role of the male in preventing errors inherent in female only reproduction (parthenogenesis).

* Mike Dunne will join us, weather permitting, on 5th of October.
