Science as a Human Endeavour
This post will go through some things to look into for SHE for QCE Biology.
4.2.4 – Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE)
- SHE subject matter will not be assessed on the external examination but could be used in the development of claims and research questions for the research investigation.
Evidence for Evolution
- Evidence for evolution: Technological developments in the fields of comparative genomics, comparative biochemistry and bioinformatics enable identification of further evidence for evolutionary relationships.
This video goes through some evidence for evolution.
The Evolution of Humans
- Human evolution — are we still evolving? Human evolution is still occurring (particularly in Western societies) after the significant cultural events of the Industrial Revolution and the introduction of agriculture, modern medicine and mass transportation.
This is s short overview of the history of human evolution.
This is a short video on the current evolution path of humans.
Population Sizes and Reserves
- Unsustainable population size and reserve area: Calculating minimum reserve sizes for a target conservation species should consider the viability of a single large reserve vs. a number of smaller reserves that are connected by ‘green corridors’.
This video goes through determining the effective population size.
