Darwinian Evolution Across the Disciplines

Realplayer translations of talks from 
a Dartmouth Interdisciplinary Symposium

October 29-30, 1999, Dartmouth College

The talks featured below require that Realplayer software and either
Netscape or Internet Explorer be installed on your Mac or PC.
More particularly, they require that the "Realplayer plug-in" be installed
in the plug-ins folder of your browser. If you do not have the "Realplayer plug-in,"
a free version of Realplayer (which includes the plug-in) is available here.

You may also find it necessary, on the Macintosh, to increase the memory alotted to your
browser by several thousand kilobytes in order to get these lectures to run properly.
This version of the talks will not run on Unix machines.
