Describe early ideas and observations on evolution?
Charles Darwin invented evolution, he say on the Galapagos islands that there was the same bird on every island but with different beaks, so he thought that they just adapted to their surroundings. so there's his ideas...evolution is a highly debatable subject, currently there is more evidence against evolution however the scientists that believe in it keep the subject going with small tidbits of info.
Prior to sailing on the Beagle, Darwin was yet to observe different species of animals and plants in different regions. The observations were valuable in conceptualizing evolution. Before the voyage, Darwin believed that species were confined to different geographical locations, but ideas of species adaptation and evolution were nonexistent.
A form of reasoning called is the process of forming general ideas and rules based on your experiences and observations?
A system of ideas that explains many related observations and is supported by a large body of evidence acquired through scientific investigation?
Cultural evolution is the phenomenon whereby cultural ideas, notions, views, etc. propagate throughout populations, like alleles propagate throughout population gene pools in biological evolution. Some propose that the way these ideas propagate throughout populations is similar to the ways of biological evolution, in that cultural ideas (or memes) are subject to a kind of cultural selection, that determines how fast they spread, and to what degree.
What is a set of closely related ideas that attempt to organize and connect observations and research known as?
Darwin Which was the theory of evolution by natural selection. this is where the fittest species survive and pass on their traits. Lamarack which is the theory acquired characteristics . similar but wrong where it states animals will adapt and chage there thraist to fit in the environment and pass on their traits
Lemarck's ideas of evolution are known as the inheritance of acquired characteristics what was incorrect about his theory of how organisms evolve?
Subjective observations cannot be seen. They are ideas, thoughts, or opinions. If you cannot see it, feel it, hear it, or smell it, it is a subjective observation. Objective observations can be seen. If you can see it, feel it, hear it, or smell it, it is an objective observation. Objective observations can be tested and falsified for objects and concepts that cannot be seen, heard, smelled, felt, or smelled, such as subatomic particles.
Linnaeus's contribution to taxonomy was that he expanded on Aristotle's ideas of classification. Like Aristotle, Linnaeus used observations as the basis of his system. He wrote descriptions of organisms in groups based on their observable features. Linnaeus also used his observations to devise a naming system for organisms. In Linnaeus's naming system, called binomial nomenclature, each organism is given a two-part name.
scientist whose ideas about evolution were the same as Darwin's- Wallace geologist who influenced Darwin- Lyell geologist who influenced Darwin- Hutton scientist whose ideas about evolution and adaptation influenced Darwin- Lamarck economist whose ideas about human population influenced Darwin-Malthus
