Signals of Natural Selection Found in Recent Human Evolution

Evolution, in very loose lines, is defined as the process which allows a species to survive by passing on the differentiating traits most likely to help offspring adapt to the world through means of natural and sexual selection. Considering the world around us has been shaped so much by human hand, a lot of people [...]Humanity is still subjected to the natural process of evolution, despite advances is a post from ZME Science. © ZME Science - All Rights Reserved.
