Evolution in decades

University of Oregon biologist Bill Cresko discusses his lab's discovery that threespine stickleback, a small fish native to seawater, were able to quickly evolve, both genetically and phenotypically (external traits), to survive their being isolated in small freshwater ponds following the 1964 Alaskan earthquake. Cresko's team suggests other organisms may have this ability to survive sudden environmental change.
