What hypothesis explains Darwin's theory of how limbless salamanders evolved according to Darwin's theory of nateral selection?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Darwin's hypothesis for limbless salamanders is that their ancestors with limbs faced environmental pressures that favored limb reduction over time. Individuals with shorter limbs were more likely to survive and reproduce in their habitats, passing on their genes for reduced limbs to the next generation due to the advantage it provided in their environment. Over many generations, this selection pressure led to the evolution of limbless salamanders.

How do newts reproduce?

Asked by Wiki User

Newts reproduce through internal fertilization, where a male transfers sperm to a female through a specialized structure. The female lays eggs, which are externally fertilized by the male's sperm. The eggs hatch into aquatic larvae, which undergo metamorphosis to become terrestrial adult newts.

What is the hypothesis of a aquatic salamander and a land salamander?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The hypothesis could be that the aquatic salamander will exhibit different physiological adaptations related to swimming and breathing, while the land salamander will show adaptations for terrestrial locomotion and respiration. This hypothesis could be tested by comparing the anatomical features, behaviors, and habitat preferences of both types of salamanders.

Are axolotls a sub-species?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The axolotl is a fascinating salamander that stays in its 'baby' form for life! Its unique biology has earned it the title of 'paedomorphic' species. You could say it's a species AND a subspecies, in a way. But the real magic lies in its ability to regenerate lost body parts, including limbs, tail, and even parts of its brain and spinal cord - making it a true marvel of nature! For more information on this creature or other animals you can use as anecdotes or conversation starters, please check out my videos on YouTube (@WiskiWaski). :)

Why is a salamander classified as an amphibian and not a reptile?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Because amphibians largely dwell in aquatic habitats and have highly permeable skin, requiring them to remain near a water source so that they don't dehydrate. Their habits make them amphibious, because while they live in the aquatic habitat, they can come onto land for short periods. They are not reptiles, but are classified as herptiles however, and so they fit within the study of herpetology.
