Welcome to the science of evolution. Evolution is both a science and the science of life. Cultures, societies, populations, organisms, cell and tissue types, genes and other molecules, can be compared because similarities and differences can be explained on the basis of common inheritance from earlier forms. The processes that explain evolution can be examined in nature. Evolutionary processes can be tested experimentally in the field or in the laboratory. Evolution is both real and ongoing.
