Ashland: Doc Film & Discussion series examines evolution science

October 10, 2013

| Free

The Documentary Film & Discussion Series will show Understanding Evolution Science: Co-evolution and Natural Selection (57 min) Oct. 10, from 7 – 9 p.m., in the Ashland Public Library Community Room, 66 Front St. Admission is free, and viewers are invited to stay for discussion. The Documentary Film & Discussion Series is sponsored by The Friends of the Ashland Library.

Understanding Evolution Science: Co-evolution and Natural Selection examines some of the mechanisms or processes of evolution – in particular, the concept of co-evolution. Co-evolution is the process by which plants, animals and insects reciprocally affect each other's evolution. Natural selection is also a mechanism or process of evolution. There are three requirements of natural selection – variation, heritability, and differential reproductive success.

The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed.
