The Theory of Evolution

Chapter 15

Hickox: Baker High School


Charles darwin and natural selection

Charles Darwin and Natural Selection

1) The theory of evolution is the fundamental concept in biology…… Evolution describes the theory of change in populations over time, not individual species.

2) Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882)

3) Fossils shaped ideas: Why have

some species become extinct?

4) How are extinct species and

modern species related, if they are?

5) Darwin spent years studying and a trip to Galapagos Islands and wrote “On the Origin of the Species”

Hickox: Baker High School


Artificial and natural selection

Artificial and Natural Selection

6) Darwin observed breeding organism with a certain trait produced offspring with identical traits. This is called artificial selection.

7) Examples:

8) Darwin decided that there must be a similar process in nature. He called this

natural selection.

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

Darwin argued that Successful (adaptive) genotypes become more common in subsequent generations, that leads to increase in fitness

(9) which is the increase in the ability to survive)

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

(10) Natural selection: organism with favorable traits are able to reproduce and pass their traits on to their offspring.

11) Those without favorable traits are more likely to die and those with the favorable trait would be favored.

Which moths are more likely to survive?

Light moths

Dark moths

Light tree

Dark trees

The theory of evolution

Charles Darwin and Natural Selection

Fossils Shaped Darwin’s Ideas

  • Darwin and Scientist wondered how fossils formed and why many fossils species were extinct.

    12) What kinds of relationships might exist between the extinct and modern species?

Darwin on HMS Beagle

13) At 22 took job as naturalist on English

ship. (5 year scientific journey)

14) Collected biological and fossil specimens

  • Became curious about possible relationships among species…foundations of theory of evolution and Natural Selection

The theory of evolution

Evidence for Evolution

15) An adaptation is any variation that aids an organism’s survival in its environment.

Examples of adaptations

16) Mimicry:occurs when one species looks like another species. A harmless species takes on the look of a dangerous species. Predators avoid the harmful and harmless species. Both benefit.

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

Mimicry Is An Outcome of Predator-Prey Interactions

If a potential prey species develops an effective defense system, other unprotected prey species may come to mimic the protected species.

The stinging yellow jacket and its harmless mimic, the clearwing moth.

17) Camouflage:an adaptation that enables species to blend with their surroundings

Video- Praying Mantis

Camouflage in the anglerfish

The theory of evolution

Video: Whale fossils

18) Other evidence:

Fossils:

  • Paleontologist conclude from fossils that the ancestors of whales were probably land-dwelling, doglike animals, but the record is incomplete. They do not have all the fossils for all the changes but still draw conclusions as to the overall picture.

Hickox: Baker High School


Structurally similarities

Structurally Similarities

(19) Homologous Structures:

The anatomy of different organism show similar patterns. Some believe these structural features show common origin.

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

20) Bird and butterfly wings are not similar in structure, but they are similar in function

(what they do - Function).

21) The body parts of organism that do not have a common evolutionary origin but are similar in function are called analogous structures.

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

22) Vestigial structure:

  • A body structure in a present-day body organism that NO longer serves its original purpose, but was probably useful to an ancestor. Examples:

    23) eyes of blind mole-rats are vestigial

    24) cave fish are vestigial

    25) flightless birds (ostrich)

    26) pelvic bones in whales

    27) an adult python pelvic legs can be seen

Hickox: Baker High School


Adaptive radiation beak type

Adaptive radiation (Beak type)

28) Is a type of Divergent evolution in which ancestral species evolve into a variety of species that fit diverse habitats. (Galapagos Islands)

Hickox: Baker High School


Darwin s finches adaptive radiation

Darwin’s Finches- Adaptive Radiation

Hickox: Baker High School


The theory of evolution

29) These finches, better known as 'Darwin's Finches' illustrated adaptive radiation. This is where species all deriving from a common ancestor have over time successfully adapted to their environment via natural selection.

  • Previously, the finches occupied the South American mainland, but somehow managed to occupy the Galapagos islands, over 600 miles away. They occupied an ecological niche with little competition.

Hickox: Baker High School


Bird beak adaptation

Bird Beak Adaptation

Curlew: Long downward curved beak to probe shores for worms in the sediment

Brown Creeper:

Thin bill curves down to probe under bark

Cardinal, Gross Beak:

Beak is used as a nut cracker to crack open nuts and seeds

Hickox: Baker High School


Bird beak adaptation1

Bird Beak Adaptation

Heron: spear like bill for spearing fish and frogs.

Eagle: Short stout beak, hooked upper jaw for tearing flesh.

Flamingo: short downward snout for separating mud and silt from shellfish and algae to eat

Bird beak adaptation2

Bird Beak Adaptation

Duck Merganser:

Flat Sieve like bill for drinking and catching fish

Pelican: large bill with a stretchable pouch for holding fish caught under water.

Hummingbird. Uses long bill to dipping in flowers and sipping nectar

Hickox: Baker High School


Bird beak adaptation3

Bird Beak Adaptation

Woodpecker: uses its beak like a drill to bore holes in bark to get at the insects

Spoonbill:

to shovel small fish and crustacean from the mud

Skimmer: use lower jaw to skim water to scoop fish from the water.

Hickox: Baker High School


Hibernation

Hibernation:

  • Some mammals, such as bats and chipmunks, and a few other types of animals go into a deep sleep during parts of the winter months.

  • state in which body temperature drops substantially

  • oxygen consumption decreases

  • breathing rates decline to a few breaths per minute

  • Conserves __________,

energy

Migration

Migration:

  • Instinctive, seasonal movement of animals.

  • In North America, about 2/3 of birds species fly south in fall to areas such as South America.

  • Migration generally occurs to places where breeding occurs in the summer

  • Migration occurs to where food is available during the winter

  • Whales migrate seasonally

  • Migration might be responding to colder temperatures and shorter days

Continental drift and geographic isolation

Continental Drift and Geographic Isolation

  • The theory that Africa and South America slowly drifted apart and were once a single landmass.

  • The monkeys on the two continents, although similar have many genetic differences. This is called geographic isolation. Occurs whenever a physical barrier such as a river divides a population; results in individuals of the population no longer able to mate- this can lead to new species
