Dr. Cara Wall-Scheffler discusses human evolution in The Conversation article

In a new post on the science-focused journalism site, The Conversation, Dr. Cara Wall-Scheffler, Professor of Biology, argues that the activities of everyday life influence human evolution just as much as “uncommon activities” (such as big-game hunting). The article, "Everyday life and its variability influenced human evolution at least as much as rare activities like big-game hunting", draws from Dr. Wall-Scheffler's own research and the research of other scientists to present a new model for understanding how humans evolve in response to their social and environmental interactions.
