LECTURE 1
LINNEAEUS CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM OF LIVING THINGS
LECLER & BUFFON EARTH IS OLDER THAN BIBLICAL TIMES, ANIMALS EVOLVED RATHER THAN SPONTANEOUSLY
GENERATED
LAMARCK ACQUIRED TRAITS/CHARACTERISTICS DEVELOPED THROUGH USE/DISUSE
EX: LONG NECK GIRAFFES
CUVIER CATASTROPHISMÆ CHANGES IN THE EARTHS POPULATION (EX: NATURAL DISASTERS)
HUTTON UNIFORMITARIANISMÆ REPEATED UNIFORM PROCESS
LYELL EARTH IS VERY OLD AND ALWAYS IN MOTION
DARWIN STUDY ON FINCHES (BEAK SIZE)Æ POPULATIONS EVOLVE
DARWIN & WALLACE NATURAL SELECTIONÆ BEST SEPECIES ADOPTED TO ENVIRONMENTÆ BEST CHANCES OF
SURVIVING/REPRODUCING
Æ ALL SPECIES DESCEND FROM OTHER SPECIES
DARWINS EVOLUTION 1) STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE
2) VARIATION IN FITNESS
3) INHERITANCE OF VARIATION
SPENCER COINEDÆ SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
INTELLIGENT DESIGN SCIENCE CANNOT EXPLAIN LIFE
ADAPTIVE TRAIT TRAIT THAT INCREASES CHANCES OF SURVIVAL REPRODUCTION
VARIATION DIFFERENCES
HERITABILITY INHERITED TRAITS
DIFFERENTIAL
REPRODUCTIVE SUCCESS DIFFERENT CHANCES OF SURVIVING, LEAVING OFFSPRING
SPECIES POPULATION OF ORGANISMS WHO CAN REPRODUCE OFFSPRING
SPECIATION DEVELOPMENT OF NEW SPECIES (DUE TO CHANGE IN ENVIRONMENT CODNITIONS ETC)
