Great overall Evolution resources:

Rediscovering Biology: Evolution and Phylogenetics

Evolution, by Mark Ridley (video gallery and tutorials)

Becoming Human, fantastic interactive documentary resources from the Institute of Human Origins.

Richard Dawkins – The Greatest Show on Earth

Dawkin’ Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution is a well-written and logical presentation of the evidence for evolution, and we have a copy in the library. Otherwise, get on Amazon and buy your own.

There is a very funny review of the book here: John Crace’s digested read podcast.

Challenge:

Summarise each chapter in a series of slides or mind maps, with visual sources.
