Books and Ideas is back with an
interview of Jonathan Losos, author of Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of
Evolution. This fascinating book reveals the surprising
world of experimental evolutionary biology. We explore how
experiments both in the laboratory and in the wild are answering
long-standing questions about how evolution works.
