Our understanding of human evolution has grown exponentially since Darwin's time. This week marks the 206th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, so we're sharing a Darwin-related Leakey Foundation lecture from our archives. In this lecture, recorded in 2009 at the Field Museum in Chicago, Daniel Lieberman of Harvard University discusses the evolution and dysevolution of humans 150 years after On the Origin of Species.

The Leakey Foundation and the Field Museum present Dr. Dan Lieberman at The Field Museum. April 4, 2009. Full Title: Survival of the Swiftest, Smartest or Fastest: Human Evolution 150 Years After Darwin
