What does it take to make a new species? From finches in the Galapagos Islands or fish in African lakes to fruit flies closer to home, we'll talk to evolutionary biologists about how new species develop, and how advances in molecular biology are helping scientists trace evolutionary pathways. It's the origins of species, in this hour of Science Friday.
