Title: Learn.Genetics: Variation, Selection & Time
Url: https://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/selection/
Publisher: University of Utah
Description: The Scout Report has profiled the Genetic Science Learning Center website from the University of Utah in the past, but the website's authors continue to add material of note. This latest offering looks into the genetic variables of variation, selection, and time. As the site notes, "In our ever-changing world, a naturally occurring genetic difference in an individual can become an advantage or a fatal flaw in the struggle for survival." Visitors can start with the introductory section, titled "Recipe for Evolution," to explore an interactive "recipe" that's both fun and edifying. Moving on, the "Things You May Not Know About Evolution" looks into common misconceptions about the process of evolution. Finally, visitors can also use the Evolution in Action area to explore evolution in the stickleback fish and rock pocket mice.
