Here's a question that some of the biology people might be able to answer. What role does physics play in the study of evolutionary biology? When I was in college last year, a physics professor once came to my seminar class to give a talk on the role of physics in evolutionary biology (unfortunately he spent about 90% of his time debunking creationism, which is unfortunate since almost no one in the class believed it to begin with). However, I haven't found any papers in physics journals that deal with the subject. So I'm just wondering if anyone knows how physics is used to study evolution. Are there any prominent physicists in this field that anyone could reference?
