Crazy Adaptations

  • How does the environment influence traits?


13 2 voyage of the beagle

13.2 Voyage of the Beagle

  • In 1831, the research ship H.M.S. Beagle left England for a five-year cruise around the world.


13 2 voyage of the beagle1

13.2 Voyage of the Beagle

  • A young man named Charles Darwin (1809–1882) collected thousands of plant and animal species.

  • Darwin wrote down his observations and collected evidence about evolution.

  • One of the places where the Beagle stopped was the Galapagos Islands, west of South America.


13 2 how evolution works

13.2 How Evolution Works

  • Darwin noted differences in finches from island to island.

  • One difference he found was in the shape of their beaks.

  • The shape of finch beaks appeared to differ with the type of food eaten.


13 2 how evolution works1

13.2 How Evolution Works

  • Darwin concluded that finch beaks were adapted for the type of food they ate.

  • He began to think about why and how the finches became different from each other.


13 2 darwin s hypothesis

13.2 Darwin’s hypothesis

  • Darwin hypothesized that an ancestral species of finch from the mainland somehow ended up on the Galapagos Islands.

  • Each group of finches became isolated from the other groups.

  • Eventually, each group became a different species.


13 2 darwin s theory

13.2 Darwin’s Theory

  • In 1859, Darwin published the results of his study in a book called On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.

  • Based on his research and evidence, Darwin concluded that:

    1. Organisms change over time.

    2. All organisms are descended from common ancestors by a process of branching.

    3. Evolution is gradual, taking place over a long time.

    4. The mechanism of evolution is natural selection.


13 2 natural selection

13.2 Natural Selection

  • Natural selectionis the process by which organisms with favorable adaptations survive and reproduce at a higher rate than organisms with less-favorable adaptations.
