Evolution/Natural Selection Individual organisms differ and some variation can be inherited (fitness). Fitness is the ability of an organism to survive and reproduce. Organisms produce more offspring than can survive. Compete for limited resources. Survival of the Fittest

evolution natural selection
Evolution/Natural Selection
  • Individual organisms differ and some variation can be inherited (fitness).
  • Fitness is the ability of an organism to survive and reproduce.
  • Organisms produce more offspring than can survive.
  • Compete for limited resources.
  • Survival of the Fittest
  • Organisms that survive pass their traits on to the next generation.
evolution

Evolution

Over time natural selection results in changes in the inherited characteristics of a population.

speciation
SPECIATION
  • Natural selection and chance events can change the relative frequencies of alleles in a population and result in the formation of a new species.
diversity
DIVERSITY
  • Natural Selection leads to a wide variety of species.
  • Darwin observed that the characteristics of many animals and plants varied noticeably among the different islands of the Galapágos.
  • Galapágos island Finches are a good example of diversity.
phylogeny
PHYLOGENY
  • The study of evolutionary relationships among organisms.
  • Biologists now group organisms into categories that represent lines of evolutionary descent.
adaptation
ADAPTATION
  • Inherited characteristic that increases an organism’s chance of survival.
  • Survival of the fittest.
behavior
Behavior
  • The way an organism reacts to changes in its internal condition or external environment.
extinction
EXTINCTION
  • The disappearance of a species from all parts of its geographical range.
  • Example: Dinosaurs
