Further details

Today, most land-living animals reproduce by having sex. But that one simple act creates endless complications. In humans it can create heartache and conflict. More profoundly, it's an inefficient way to reproduce. So why did sex evolve? Over the past decade, biologists have started to find answers to one of life's biggest mysteries. And they are even beginning to shed light on how some of the heartache might be eliminated.

This lecture is presented by paleontologist John Long from Flinders University and evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks from the University of New South Wales.
