Evolutionary biologist Menno Schilthuizen is among a growing number of urban ecologists studying how manmade environments are affecting the evolution of animals and plants. Example: some urban blackbirds sing at a higher pitch than their rural cousins to be heard over the din of traffic.
In this free Academy Town Square, WHYY’s The Pulse Host Maiken Scott engages the author in a fascinating conversation based on his new book Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution.
