Charles DarwinDarwin and the HMS Beagle During his travels, Darwin wrote thousands ofpages in his journals, drew pictures of the thingshe saw, and collected a vast amount of evidencethat led him to propose a revolutionaryhypothesis about the way life changes.Galápagos Islands While on his voyage around the world aboardthe HMS Beagle, Darwin spent about one monthobserving life on the Galápagos Islands. There, he encounteredsome unique animals,such as finches andtortoises.3

1/8/2018Darwin’s Findings Concept MapAfter his voyage, Darwin spent a great deal oftime thinking about his findings.He began to wonder if animals living ondifferent islands had once been members ofthe same species that had developed differentcharacteristics after becoming isolated fromone another in different habitats.Evidence ofEvolutionIncludesThe Fossil RecordGeographicDistribution ofLiving SpeciesHomologous BodyStructuresSimilaritiesin EarlyDevelopmentwhich is composed ofwhich indicateswhich implieswhich impliesPhysical Remainsof OrganismsCommon AncestralSpeciesSimilar GenesSimilar GenesDarwin’s Findings3. Darwin Presents His Case After Darwin returned to England in 1836 hefilled notebooks with his ideas about speciesdiversity and the process that he would later callevolution.He did not rush to publish his ideas becausethey disagreed with the fundamental scientificbeliefs of his day.He asked his wife to publish his ideas when hedied.Wallace’s EssayOrigin of SpeciesIn 1858, another naturalist, Alfred Russell Wallacewrote an essay describing his work in Malaysiathat summarized the same ideas Darwin had beenthinking about for 25 years. Suddenly Darwin had incentive to publish theresults of his work.In 1859 On the Origin of Species presentedevidence and proposed a mechanism forevolution that he callednatural selection.5

Thisleads to Hmmm 6
1/8/2018VocabularyVocabularyAdaptation is any inherited characteristic thatincreases an organism’s chance of survival.A transitional fossil is anyfossilized remains of a life formthat exhibits traits common to bothan ancestral (original) group andits derived descendant (new)group. This is especially importantwhere the descendant group issharply distinguished by anatomyand mode of living from theancestral group.What is Darwin’s Theory? Over time, natural selection results in changes inthe inherited characteristics of a population.These changes increase a species’ fitness in theirenvironment.How does it work? Descent with modification suggests that eachspecies has descended with changes, fromother species over time. This idea suggests that all living species are relatedto each other; and that all species, living andextinct, share a common ancestor.7

The theory of evolution by natural selection is a theory about the mechanism by which evolution occurred in the past, and is still occurring now. The basic theory was developed by both Darwin and Wallace, however, Darwin gave a much fuller argument. The theory states that biological change takes place with two basic characteristics:
