Description: Evolutionary biology is an organizing principle of biology. It is the study of the patterns of the history of life and the processes that shaped it. Evolutionary biologists aim to understand how biodiversity is generated and lost over time. Research approaches include: how organisms are related, how organisms adapt to their environment, how the processes of natural selection, genetic drift, and migration shape natural and laboratory populations, what the fossil record reveals about the history of life, and how novelty in organisms arise.
