Evolution

Annotations:

  • An example of this is how animals in hot climates have larger ears than similar animals in colder climates because big ears lose heat quickly, while small ears lose heat slowly.
  • Another example is how bees are striped to warn other animals that they are dangerous
  1. Micorevolution
    1. Shorter period of time
      1. Artificial Selection

                                        1. Behavioural isolation
                                          1. Mating signals
                                      3. Post-zygotic

                                              1. Caused by barrier
                                          3. Charles Darwin
                                            1. Surveyed South America; Galapagos islands 1831-1836
                                              1. Natural Selection
                                                1. Observations
                                                  1. In each generation, more off-spring are produced than can survive
                                                    1. Populations do not grow in size
                                                      1. Individuals within a population compete for resources
                                                        1. Over time the population changes as advantageous heritable characterisitcs become more common generation after generation
                                                      2. Food and other resources are limited
                                                        1. Individuals within all populations vary
                                                          1. Many variations are heritable
                                                            1. Some individuals will inherit traits that give them a better chance of surviving and reproducing
