Thus, no one even considers using carbon dating for dates in this range.
He also shows how different branches of an evolutionary tree arise with the same line analogy. Yan’s personality and entire video really engaging.
The simple demonstration will stick with your students because it is a memorable analogy that is easily understood.
Yan to show how evolution produces large scale diversity. Yan draws a perfectly straight line on a tablet computer.
