Description

Perhaps the best-known example of natural selection or of evolution ever observed, told by a determined pioneer who makes field ecology come alive. Bruce Grant spent his career teaching genetics and evolution at the College of William and Mary. Several major researchers of evolutionary processes started as undergraduates being motivated by Grant’s depth of knowledge and enthusiasm. In 2022, he published an inspiring biography “Observing Evolution” a chronicle of his deep and detailed investigation of Industrial melanism. If you aspire to experience field ecology, read his book and attend his lecture.
