Recapping Responses to Nature's Evolution Evangelism Packet

I've received quite a bit of positive feedback about the responses to the Nature 15 Evolutionary Gems packet that we've been responding to since last summer. As a recap of this series, below are links to the 9 parts responding to what I've affectionately called "Nature's Evolution-Evangelism Packet." Also, we've compiled the responses into a single PDF that can be used for educational purposes:

  • Part 1: Evaluating Nature's 2009 "15 Evolutionary Gems" Darwin-Evangelism Kit

  • Part 2: Nature's Microevolutionary Gems Part 1: Lizards, Fish, Snakes, and Clams
