Mechanisms of Evolution Links

The following list consists of collections of resources. Most of them emphasize the mechanisms of evolution as well as the evidence for it.

A comparison of the five kingdoms of life our students learned about in the 20th century animals plants fungi protists and bacteria with the kingdoms for the21st century archaea bacteria and eukaryotes

One major challenge for teaching evolution is that our understanding of evolution and life itself have recently been changed by molecular genetics. The bacteria are far more diverse at a molecular level than the rest of this, and have been split into two kingdoms. The rest of us (plants, animals, fungi, and protists) are all compartively similar at a genetic level. The DNA in human beings and oak trees is approximately 50% identical.
