The War Between Bats and Moths

SciWorks Radio is a production of 88.5 WFDD and SciWorks, the Science Center and Environmental Park of Forsyth County, located in Winston-Salem.

  Today we're talking about an arms race that's been escalating in our skies - for about 65 million years. The war between Bats and moths is driven by natural selection, which is the engine of evolution. This is how it 

  works: An individual organism is born with a mutation that gives it an advantage for survival. Maybe its better at finding food or avoiding predators, but it lives longer and produces more offspring.
