Evolution Tomorrow and Beyond
Evolution has led from amoebae to blue whales and from algae to giant redwoods.
So what might it do in the future? What species might evolve in the next ten million years? How will evolutionary processes change as a result of human innovation and what are the risks of us getting it disastrously wrong? What might evolution look like if we ever set up home on another planet, or if inhabitants of other planets arrive here?
