Vol. 1 of the Evolution River Series
The Future History of Mankind
With advancements in the modern science of genetics engineering, the evolutionary process, according to former mining engineer Clayton (who also has an interest in algae aquaculture for biofuel) is going to speed up phenomenally. A million years could be telescoped into a 100, maybe 10. Pretty heady sci-fi stuff.
In an underground community on the Tohono O’odham reservation, a small group connected at one time with Biosphere2 (near Oracle) is attempting to establish new evolutionary rates for plants and their effects.
