Evolution Crossword Puzzle

Type
Crossword
Description

This crossword contains the following questions and answers:

change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation evolution
survival of the fittest= process by which forms of life having traits that better enable them to adapt to specific environmental pressures natural selection
process in the breeding of animals and in the cultivation of plants by which the breeder chooses to perpetuate only those forms having certain desirable inheritable characteristics. artificial selection
adjustment= the act of adapting adaptation
term used by paleontologists to refer to the total number of fossils that have been discovered, as well as to the information derived from them fossil record
the ability of a population to maintain or increase its numbers in succeeding generations fitness
diversification of an ancestral group of organisms into a variety of related forms specialized to fit different environments or ways of life adaptive radiation
appearance of apparently similar structures in organisms of different lines of descent convergent evolution
random changes in the frequency of alleles in a gene pool, usually of small populations genetic drift
the conditions, as physiological or behavioral differences or geographical barriers, that prevent potentially interbreeding populations from cross-fertilization reproductive isolation
separation of two populations of the same species or breeding group by a physical barrier geological isolation
close external resemblance of an organism mimicry
concealment by some means that alters or obscures the appearance camouflage
structures of different species having similar or corresponding function but not from the same evolutionary origin analogous structures

came up with the Theory of Evolution through Natural Selection Charles Darwin
one of the first scientists to publish the idea that adaptation occurred in species to help them better survive in the environment Jean Baptiste Lamarck
Essay on the Principle of Population=hypothesized that populations would grow in areas with plenty of resources until those resources were strained to the point that some of the population would have to die Thomas Malthus
described Earth as a living organism, inspired Darwin James Hutton
