Evolution change over time

EVOLUTION:CHANGE OVER TIME


In biology evolution refers to

In Biology…evolution refers to:

  • Changes in SPECIES over time

  • A species is a group of similar organisms that can breed and produce fertile offspring.


Charles darwin

CHARLES DARWIN

  • Proposed the theory of evolution

  • He made observations on his voyage around the world…collecting evidence to develop his theory.

  • On the Origin of Species (Book—1859)


Important observations

IMPORTANT OBSERVATIONS

  • Noticed a great diversity among a number of species.

  • Plants and animals were suited to the environment in which they lived.

  • Different species lived in similar ecosystems.


Fossil record

FOSSIL RECORD

  • A fossil is the preserved remains of ancient organisms.

    • Some looked like modern animals

    • Some looked different than any modern organisms


The galapagos islands

The Galapagos Islands

  • Very close to one another…but their climates differed greatly-

    • Low elevation: very dry, hot, sparsely vegetated

    • Higher elevation: a lot of rainfall, more diverse plant life

Fitness

FITNESS

  • Organisms compete to survive and reproduce

  • Organisms best suited to their environments are most likely to succeed


Fitness is attributed to

FITNESS is attributed to:

  • Adaptations

    • Any inherited trait that increases an organism’s chance of survival


Natural selection

NATURAL SELECTION

  • SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST—

    • Those that are able to survive will be able to reproduce and pass on their adaptations to the next generation

Two ways evolution may occur

TWO WAYS EVOLUTION MAY OCCUR

  • GRADUALISM

    • Occurs over a long period of time

  • PUNCTUATEDEQUILIBRIUM

    • Occurs in spurts

    • Caused by:

      • Random change in DNA

      • Sudden environmental changes


Continuity of life forms over time

CONTINUITY OF LIFE FORMS OVER TIME


Two forms of evolution

TWO FORMS OF EVOLUTION

  • MACROEVOLUTION

    • changes that occur on the tree of life

  • MICROEVOLUTION

    • Changes that occur within a population

    • (group of individuals of the same species living in the same area)


Evolution change over time

  • Genetic variation is caused by changes in genetic frequency—there are 5 forces of genetic change:

    1. Natural Selection

    2. Mutations

    3. Gene flow

    4. Genetic drift

    5. Nonrandom mating


Mutations

MUTATIONS

  • Change in DNA sequence

    • Deletion

    • Inversion

    • Translocation

    • Duplication

      …however…


Mutations1

MUTATIONS

  • To affect evolution, mutations must be passed on from one generation to the next…

  • Only mutations in gametes can be passed on…

  • …to affect evolution!


Gene flow

GENE FLOW

  • Genes from one population are introduced into the gene pool of another

  • GENE POOL: combined genetic info of all members

  • Basically affected by migration


Genetic drift

GENETIC DRIFT

  • Changing the allele frequency

  • Some individuals may have more offspring than others


Bottleneck effect

BOTTLENECK EFFECT

  • A form of genetic drift

  • Sudden and severe decrease in a population size that results from natural disaster, predation, or habitat reduction.


Bottleneck effect1

Bottleneck Effect


Founder s effect

FOUNDER’S EFFECT

  • A form of genetic drift

  • occurs when a new isolated population is founded by a small number of individuals possessing limited genetic variation

    (relative to the larger population from which they have migrated)


Founder s effect1

Founder’s Effect

Nonrandom mating

NONRANDOM MATING

  • Not all individuals have the opportunity to contribute their genes to the next generation (decreasing their allele frequency)

  • Courtship rituals, pecking orders, breeding territories

Evolution change over time

  • Number of current classified species =

  • 2.1 million

  • Organisms that are not capable of breeding with each other belong to a different species


Evolution change over time

  • What causes new species to form?

    • The evolutionary process called SPECIATION forms new species.

    • New species evolve in 3 ways….


1 geographic isolation

1. GEOGRAPHIC ISOLATION

  • A population is divided by a barrier

  • Two geographically isolated populations can no longer reach each other to breed

  • Natural selection on each side causes the populations to become genetically different


1 geographic isolation1

1. GEOGRAPHIC ISOLATION


2 parapatric speciation

2. PARAPATRIC SPECIATION

  • Two neighboring populations

    • One hot and dry

    • One cooler and wet

  • Natural selection favors different adaptations in area

    • Causing genetic differences

  • At the boundary—individuals breed and make hybrids…


2 parapatric speciation1

2. PARAPATRIC SPECIATION


3 behavioral isolation

3. BEHAVIORAL ISOLATION

  • Differences among individuals cause them to choose different mates.

  • Continual, nonrandom mating causes individuals to become genetically different.


3 behavioral isolation1

3. BEHAVIORAL ISOLATION


Extinction

EXTINCTION

  • The death of all individuals within a species.

  • No longer able to survive changing environmental conditions

    -or-

  • No longer able to compete


Evidence of evolution

EVIDENCE OF EVOLUTION


Field of palentology

FIELD OF PALENTOLOGY

  • Fossils are “dead remains” that prove organisms existed

  • Give information about the age of organism (dating)

  • PROBLEMS??

    • Still missing links

    • Haven’t found all remains


Field of biogeography

FIELD OF BIOGEOGRAPHY

  • Geographic distribution of organisms

  • Grouped according to the needs of habitats, resources

  • Similar organisms will arise in the same geographic location

Evolution change over time

  • Discuss Darwin’s contributions to how living things change over time.

  • Discuss evidence for how living things change over time—including homology, biogeography and fossil record.

  • Discuss the five conditions preventing living things from changing over time (Hardy-Weinberg). What conclusions can you draw based on this information?

  • There are several agents (mechanisms) for how living things change over time, focus your research on the following: genetic drift (including the founder’s effect and bottleneck effect) and gene flow.

Evolution change over time

All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black SeaBy MICHAEL HANLON

Everyone with blue eyes can be traced back 10,000 years to the Black Sea region. Throughout history they have been the eyes that are prized. Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood.But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic mystery. Until now.According to a team of researchers from Copenhagen University, a single mutation which arose as recently as 6-10,000 years ago was responsible for all the blue-eyed people alive on Earth today.The team identified a single mutation in a gene called OCA2, which arose by chance somewhere around the northwest coasts of the Black Sea in one single individual, about 8,000 years ago.The gene does not "make" blue in the iris; rather, it turns off the mechanism which produces brown melanin pigment. "Originally, we all had brown eyes," says Dr Hans Eiberg, who led the team.And most people still do. The finding that a rare mutation, probably dispersed in the rapid wave of colonization that followed the end of the last ice age, highlights one of the great mysteries of human evolution: the oddness of Europeans. One theory is that Europe's cold weather and dark skies played a part. Fair skin is better at making Vitamin D from the 8 per cent of the world's population have blue eyes weak sunlight found in northern latitudes. Perhaps the most plausible theory is that blonde hair and blue eyes arose because of a mechanism called sex selection.This is where males and females choose as their mates those who have one unusual physical characteristic, not necessarily associated with "fitness" per se but simply something unusual.The gigantic (and otherwise useless) tail of the peacock is the best example.
