Dawn of the deed: sex, death and evolution
MetadataShow full item record
How and when did reproduction by sexual copulation first evolve and why? Evidence from fossils caught in the act combine with insights from the sex lives of animals today help us to explore the origins of sex and the links we humans share with our distant kinky ancestors. Prof John Long asks who did the deed first, and what does ancient sex tells us about ourselves?
