1. Describe the development of the theory of evolution with the emphasis on how the mechanism of natural selection was
developed. Evolution is the change over a long period of time. Darwin developed the theory of natural after visiting the
Galapagos islands and studying the beaks of finches. Natural selection is a process by which organisms with favorable
variations for a particular environment survive & reproduce to pass their variations on to the next generations.
2. Describe how a change in the environment leads to a change in those who are best fit for that environment. Organisms
that are best fit for the environment will either adapt to the new environment or they will become extinct.
3. Explain the differences between Darwin and Lamarck’s theories of how life changes. Lamarck believed that un-natural
characteristics would be passed on to the offspring even though it was not in their DNA. Darwin believed in natural
SB5b. Explain the history of life in terms of biodiversity, ancestry, and the rates of evolution.
1. How do genetic mutations cause adaptations and lead to natural selection? Genetic mutations can be passed on from
parent to offspring through DNA. So the traits that are developed and best suited for the environment will be passed on.

common ancestors. DNA evidence, Morphological characteristics, fossil records.
3. Explain that the biodiversity of organisms is the result of more than 3.5 billion years of environmental change, genetic
mutations and natural selection. With changes in the biosphere, organisms adapt and evolve to the environment which
leads to greater biodiversity and changes in DNA.

genetic information and their environment.
SB5c. Explain how fossil and biochemical evidence support the theory.
