You said "membrane protein topology". I love it. I need it. humanbe in 01:33, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

You also said "ligand specificity of repressors and periplasmic sugar-binding proteins". I'd like to see Behe refute that! humanbe in 01:36, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

Merge[edit]

Should we merge this with our rapidly-growing evolution article, or should it stand alone?--Bobbing up 15:37, 1 March 2008 (EST)

I think, just from looking at how long it is, it ought to stand alone. humanUser talk:Human 16:21, 1 March 2008 (EST)

Title[edit]

The title of this article has never seemed quite right to me. These aren't really different "types" of evolution, which would imply a different kind of evolutionary process in each case, since they're all examples of the same basic process of natural selection. They're different trends of patterns within evolution (plus there's a certain amount of subjectivity in what is interpreted as convergent or divergent) rather than different forms of evolution as such. Could it be retitled to "patterns of evolution" or "divergent and convergent evolution"? WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:13, 19 May 2013‎
