Welcome to the Sci.Bio.Evolution home page!
I have streamlined this page a bit, adding a simple list of links
that may be of some relevance to your area of interest. If you have
a link you think should be added, feel free to
drop me a line with
your candidate URL.
I've arranged these links in a rough set of categories; no scale
of "importance" is to be inferred from this listing!
My personal copy of "The Voyage of the Beagle" was lost when I left
my position at the University of Washington, but I've tracked down
online versions of several of Darwin's books at
I hope they'll meet your needs.
My old pal Jeremy Ahouse and some friends have put together a fun
adaptationist story-telling. Fun stuff.
I've added a couple of links to the "Media Resources" section; one
for The New Scientist, and one for Scientific American.
Want to win a million bucks? All you have to do is come up with a
convincing model of the origin of
genetic information! This may sound weird, but it seems to be
on the level. Check it out!
General Evolution Resources
The Talk.Origins Archive Site.
Species. This is at the talk.origins site; it's very nicely done.
Evolution Links Page.
Evolution: Theory and History
evolution and biosciences page.
The Tree of Life
Update" page; this is a good source of recent news and research on
I group here several links to things concerning computer simulations of
evolution and computer programs that produce interesting biological-like
Artificial Life Online
Artificial Life Resources
Tierra, the Evolution Simulator
A very interesting
research paper by Wirt Atmar on the simulation of evolution. There
are links here to other interesting papers as well.
I group here items relating specifically to human evolution, as
opposed to biological evolution in general.
The Human Evolution Education Network
sci.anthropology.paleo Home Page, The
The "Evolutionary Values"Page
Many people instantly connect evolution with fossils, the fossil
record, and abiogenesis. I group these topics together:
Burgess Shale Fossils
of Santa Cruz County, California
Origin of Life: The Astronomical, Chemical and Biological Aspects
for Paleobotanists. An excellent compendium of an underemphasized
field, with remarkably good response time for US browsers.
The "El Dinosaurio!"
page. This is very interesting; the Royal Tyrrell Museum is running,
in March 1998, a joint expedition with some Argentinian colleagues to
look for new Patagonian dinosaurs. This site has field reports, photos,
allows users to ask questions for later answer, and lots of other
good stuff. Check it out!
Molecular and Biotech resources
These may be of limited relevance and utility, but provide some
branch points into related fields.
Genome Database Pointers
The Internet Directory of Biotechnology Resources
Journals, magazines, television networks, and so forth.
The New Scientist. Somewhat
popularized but still accurate science.
Also somewhat popularized, but these articles are still challenging
and quite in-depth much of the time.
The National Center for Science
Nature, International Weekly Journal of Science
Science On-Line. This is now subscriber-only to read the
actual journal, but some resources are available for free.
Discovery Channel Online
The Origin of Species. The previous link for this was broken,
and I thank alert reader Peter Holm for pointing me to a more reliable
Robert C. Dunnell's
in Prehistory, with hyperlinks
and everything. A very nice rendition of a classic text.
The World of Richard Dawkins
Miscellaneous resources and some fringe ideas
Especially when it comes to human evolution, there are some pretty
off the wall ideas out there. Some of them have web pages devoted
to them. Their inclusion in this listing does not imply any approval
on the part of the moderator of sci.bio.evolution. Proceed at your
own risk of being considered weird.
John Davison's home page.
John includes three rather long essays with provocative titles; the
most recent is The
End of Evolution.
The Aquatic Ape Theory Page
"The Dawn of Human Understanding".
This page is obviously the result of a lot of hard work, but it's all
over the map in what it's about. Worth a visit.
Brig Klyce's "Cosmic Ancestry"
page. Fans of Wickramisinghe and Hoyle will find much to cheer
about on this site.
