Center for Evolutionary Studies

Scholars and educators at the Center for Evolutionary Studies explore the history and diversity of life and Earth and promote public education about evolution utilizing the museum's exhibitions, public lectures, and formal classroom training. The Center increases our knowledge of the history of life and catalyzes innovative methods of educating the public about evolutionary processes that impact both science and society.  



Researchers in the Center for Evolutionary Studies play a pivotal role in promoting natural history museum collections as the evidence for evolution. Learn more on the Curators page.
