Darwin vs Lamarckand Speciation LT 8 – I can contrast Darwin and Lamarck’s ideas about changes in organisms over time. LT 9 – I can describe the conditions required to be considered a species.
Speciation Speciation is the formation of a new species A species is a group of organisms that are closely related and that can produce fertile offspring. Speciation can begin with the separation of populations of the same species.
Speciation • Accumulated differences between populations is called divergence and can lead to a formation of a new species. • Two types of Speciation • Allopatric Speciation • Sympatric Speciation
Allopatric Speciation Occurs when a species separate into two separate groups that are isolated from each other. Physical Barrier Also known as geographical isolation Impossible to breed with one another
Sympatric Speciation Occurs when there is not a barrier to prevent members of a species from mating with another. Close proximity Also known as reproductive isolation Something seems to develop spontaneously
Exit Slip – Review What are the processes of macroevolution? What can a phyogenetic tree tell us? Explain the difference between Lamarck and Darwin’s ideas? Describe speciation. What is allopatric speciation? What is sympatric speciation? Differentiate between gradualism and punctuated equilibrium. Explain adaptive radiation. What are examples? What are the two types of mimicry? Describe the process of extinction. What are examples of organisms that have gone extinct?
