    The Harvard Museum of Natural History is proud to present “Survival of the Swiftest, Smartest, or Fattest? Human Evolution 150 Years After Darwin” a lecture by Daniel Lieberman taking place on Thursday, March 5, 6:00 pm. One hundred and fifty years after the publication of On the Origin of Species, we can now trace several major episodes of natural selection that resulted in modern humans. But, paradoxically, humans have created a world that is leading to a kind of “dysevolution.” Harvard Professor of Biological Anthropology Daniel Lieberman explains how many of the adaptations that enabled us to succeed as active hunter-gatherers, including the ability to store fat for lean time, can now impair our wellbeing and may even threaten our species' very survival. Free and open to the public in the Geological Lecture Hall.
