This website is written for a general audience and offers an excellent introduction to evolution. A wide range of content is available including a section entitled ‘Evolution 101’ which provides simple explanations about the patterns and mechanisms of evolution.  Also included on the site are more detailed, but still understandable, courses on the more advanced ideas on evolution. There is a regularly updated news section as well as a teachers’ section with teaching frameworks and ideas for lessons and activities.
