“On the Origin of Tomorrow”

Carl Zimmer discusses the future of biological evolution, especially in humans. He says it’ll keep going on. I have bells ringing from Shin Han’s seminar that human evolution is still debatable. For example, since populations are exploding after bottlenecks, selection (at least K-selection?) may be weak. R selection could be rockin’ our opportunistic species, though.

What do I think of Zimmer’s article?
