LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Cameron's National Biology Honor Society celebrated Darwin Day this evening.
Professor of Biology Dr. Mike Dunn presented his research-- "The Division of Populations into Lineages: A Case Study." He says Darwin Day is meant to show how far science has come since evolution was first discovered.
"We do this once a year for our students, and anyone else who wants to come, to show the progress we've made scientifically in expanding our understanding of evolution."
Dr. Dunn spoke about a fossil plant community recovered from a coal mining area in southern West Virginia. The collection includes different plant species and tissue types. It is estimated to be between 346 and 359 million years old.
