he studied finches iguanas and tortoises. :)
Who were Charles's Darwin's parents and what did they do
1. Variation is the raw material of natural selection 2. Living things face a constant struggle for survival (produce more offspring than survive)3. Only some individuals survive long enough to reproduce4. Natural selection results in genetic change5. Species adapt to their environment (NS makes a...
No. Because ' survival of the fittest ' is a highly inaccurate concept that is not considered empirically supportable. Fit individuals die; populations evolve by expressing the traits passed on by fit individuals. That fitness is environmentally in context dependent and a phrase like ' survival of...
Lamarck proposed that traits acquired during one's lifetime could be passed to the next generation.
Evolution, InBreeding, Cross Breeding and Asexual Reproduction.
Charles Darwin mainly studied Finches, mostly when he visited the  Galapagos Islands aboard the H.M.S. Beagle.
this theory argues that all instincts are inherited and do not have to be learned
No, Charles Darwin was British. He was born on 12th February 1809 in Shrewsbury England. For more information see the answer to the Related Question shown below.
Charles Darwin's ethnicity was English.
Famously Charles Darwin studied some finches that he collected when he visited the Galapagos Islands during his voyage on the Beagle. He preserved the specimens he had collected and studied them when he returned to England. He used his observations of the variations in these finches as part of his...
Mayr showed that Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection applies to the evolution of genes at the molecular level.
Random events are not an important part of evolution by naturalselection, though random events cause mutation and are important ingenetic drift.
No. The story traces back to Lady Hope. In a publication 33 years  after Darwin's death Lady Hope claimed that Darwin was reading the  Bible, that he made some non-committal statements, and that he had  asked her to speak to his servants about Jesus. Lady Hope did not  claim that Darwin became a...
the theory of evolution
Charles Darwin basically stated the following on his theory of evolution: Inherited variation exists within the genes of every population or species (the result of random mutation and translation errors)In a particular environment, some individuals of a population or species are better suited to...
there is variation in traits , differential reproduction and last is heredity
Skull can provide an amazing amount of evidence of the anatomical  changes that have occurred in hominids over time. Observations of  the size of the skull can give us clues on how much the brain has  evolved.
No. Molecular genetics is the strongest evidence for evolution. Comparison of chimp and human genomes for instance.
Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel discovered /invented natural selection.
Better known as "adaptive radiation", it is independent evolution from a population of a species that has become geographically isolated from its parent population.
He postulated the idea of evolution with his book: The Origin of Species.
The name of Charles Darwin's book is The Origin of Species. It was, and still is, a very unpopular book. Why this is is yet to be found.
It is probably related to the river Cam that runs through it.
The diversity of the animals and plants he saw .
Fitness in evolution means reproductive success. The fittest individuals are those which contribute the largest number of offspring to the next generation.
Charles Darwin was a biologist. he had the initial theory of natural selection or "survival of the fittest" this was the idea that when an animal was born slightly different from its species (for example a slightly longer neck) and then survived to pass on its genes because it was better adapted to...
  Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK
there is no specificied ruler of the Galapagos Islands.
Some people believe in it while others do not. Belief itself is irrelevant. The theory could be true or false regardless of how many people believe or disbelieve. I personally accept it as accurate due to the evidence that the fossil record and DNA gives us but many Christians (and those of other...
Charles Darwin went on a five year trip on the HMS Beagle ship. He set off in 1831 and returned in 1836 after making many discoveries
Somehow some people believe in his theory but most people believes in creation theory
Lamarck believed that changes acquired during an animal's life could be inherited by their offspring. We now know that inheritance does not work in this way.For example, if you are a body builder, and develop big muscles, your children will not inherit large muscles.Inherirtance works through genes,...
through his works in evolution he influenced the modernism mindset of realism
Darwin claimed blacks and Aborigines, would be eliminated and disappear in the struggle for survival because they were inferior. in his book The Descent of Man. While this view was prevalent among all Englishmen of his day, his stance gave credence to the Nazi movement to claim that the Aryan race...
The processes in Earth's early history are the same as modern  processes.
Darwin was an inquisitive man. Sure he was curious about nature and all that science stuff, but he's also a guy. So when he saw strange animals, he often wondered what they would taste like. The difference between Darwin and the rest of us is that he actually ate 'em!
Charles Darwin started studying to be a physician, but the sight of an operation without anesthesia quickly changed his mind and he began a course of study designed to lead into the clergy. All the time he wad being educated he was tutored, so to speak, by naturalist and geologists and this is a...
The most famous is On The Origin of Species. He also wrote The Voyage of the Beagle, The Descent of Man, The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, and a book about worms. This is NOT a complete list, necessarily. These were the most common books.
It is the foundation of all modern biology.

All species were descended from other species
Darwin's Theory of Descent With Modification via Natural Selection is the full name but it means "evolution via survival of the fittest."
  It denotes Darwin's specific view of how evolution works. Darwin developed the concept that evolution is brought about by the interplay of three principles: variation (present in all forms of life), heredity (the force that transmits similar organic form from one generation to another), and...
If an animal uses something they will keep that trait if not, it will die out. For instance, the giraffe's long neck was required for survival therefore they kept the trait (their ancestor's had shorter necks, which Lamarck explained was because they inherited traits gained by their parents "who had...
yes he married Mary Elizabeth Horner in Bonn.
  The example of the peppered moth and the finch are best evidence I can think of to support natural selection. Industrial melanism is a phenomenon that affected over 70 species of moths in England. It has been best studied in the peppered moth, Biston betularia. Prior to 1800, the typical moth...
Si Charles Robert Darwin (Pebrero 12 1809-Abril 19 1882) ay isang naturalista Briton na nagkamit ng pangmatagalang kasikatan bilang tagapagsimula ng teoriya ng ebolusyon ng mga hayop sa pamamagitan ng likas na pagpili (natural selection). Ipinanganak siya sa Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Inglatera...

The theory of evolution was accepted by scientists in 1859, Darwin's first book was published the same year that his theory was accepted.
1. Reproduction Information (DNA is used for life on Earth) is accurately replicated. 2. Variation Changes in parts of the information caused by mutation or recombination. 3. Selection Individuals with changes that give rise to increased reproductive success, will tend to have more offspring....
Positive selection pressure is an evolutionary factor that will "find" organisms with a given set of adaptive traits "more fit" to survive. Other organisms will not be as fit for the conditions, and these organisms will suffer more predation, disease or other "culling" that will reduce their numbers...
scientific advances in many fields of biology, along with geology and physics, have confirmed and expanded most of Darwin's hypotheses

I, personally do. It all makes sense to me. I never even thought of it as a theory when I was younger- it just makes sense. (My opinion.) I do not believe in it. This question asks for personal opinion, so I will share mine as well. I accept the theory, however, on the grounds that it best explains...
Charles Darwin was invited to be the naturalist aboard HMS Beagle  on its two year survey of South America. He set sail on December  27, 1831 from Plymouth Sound.
Darwin waited 20 years to publish his famous book because he did  not want to take any chances on not being right. He used those 20  years to do more experiments in order to test his theories.

That after a period of time, an organ or body part became obsolete because as the organism evolved, it didn't need it any more. An example is the human appendix
because carriers are the fittest in the population of most diseases.
Every time the medical establishment tries to predict the types of seasonal flu they are using the theory of evolution by natural selection, which has come a bit of a way since Darwin.
Charles Darwin did not write about genes. However, in The Origin of Species (published 1859) he proposes that natural selection occurs, and this was very controversial. An Augustinian Monk called Gregor Mendel discovered the patterns of inheritance when he did a study of inheritance in pea plants in...

Leave the most descendants such that their genes are well represented in the gene pool of the local human population.
Charles Darwin was born on 12th February 1809 in Shrubbery England. His father was Dr. Robert Waring Darwin. He had an interest in natural history at an early age. His mother dies when he was 8 and he was brought up by his sister. When Darwin was a child he was home schooled and went a day school...
Descent with modification encapsulates the two key ideas central to the theory of evolution. These are that modifications (mutations) occur, and that these mutations are inheritable (passed on to descendants or offspring).
He learned from talking to that guy that the tortoises on different islands had different shells. This led Darwin to investigate the differences in the environments on the different islands, and then to hypothesize that the tortoises had changed over the generations to adapt to the conditions on...
One of the things he has studied are bugs in collegeAnother is that he had also attempted to study medicine because his father forced him to become one like himself.The third one was i think about plants and animals and stuff such as overproduction, but i dont really know if that would fall under ...
Darwin's theory of evolution went against the Bible and Freud's social science of psychology made people reject the idea that people could use their reason to build better lives.
  fossils in different layers of rock are evidence that living things have undergone gradual change over time
If you're referring to the guy who formed the theory of evolution, no. He died in 1882, I believe.
Gradualism isn't a prediction of natural selection, but of our understanding the mechanisms that produce reproductive variation. Natural selection makes predictions about allele frequencies in populations and reproductive fitness.
at the time that he figured it out, people believed the God created all living things. therefore it was not accepted until further evidence was found.
  == Answer ==   I don't think so, if I understand your queation. You meant 'deed' instead of 'see' I am assuming. This is the latest buzzword used by attorney's who didn't get a real law degree to try and scare people. I have had this happen to me just recently. What it usually means is...

Charles Lyell influenced Charles Darwin's development of his evolutionary theory.
First of all, Darwin's theory supports evolutionism instead of creationism (the mainly-religious belief that everything was created by God in the beginning). Secondly, Darwin's theory contrasts Lamarck's because the latter thought that individuals belonging to a certain species could pass on to the...
