The human journey began 150,000 years ago. The story unites us all.
by Professor Rebecca Cann, University of Hawaii
The revolutionary theories of great New Zealand scientist Allan Wilson have inspired two generations of evolutionary biologists. His theory that we are all descended from one woman who lived in Africa about 10,000 generations ago showed just how closely related humans are. The Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution honours his life by continuing his work.
This lecture series is hosted by the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, with support from the Royal Society of New Zealand.
