Transcript
Chapter 7.1 , 7.2, and 7.3
 Evolution is the process in which inherited characteristics within a
population change over generations, sometimes developing into new
species.
 Scientists continue to develop theories to explain how evolution happens.
 Evidence that organisms evolve can be found by comparing living organisms
to each other and to the fossil record. These comparisons provide evidence
of common ancestry
 Scientists think that modern whales evolved from an ancient, land –
dwelling mammal ancestor.
 Evidence of common ancestry is provided by comparing DNA and inherited
traits.
 Darwin explained that evolution occurs through natural selection.
 Natural selection is the process where individuals that are better adapted
to their environment survive and reproduce.
 Know the 4 parts of Natural Selection found on p. 178
 Modern genetics helps explain the theory of natural selection.
