Description

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
genetically determined structures or attributes that have apparently lost most or all of its ancestral function in a given species vestigial structures
parts of the body that are similar in structure to other species' comparative parts homologous 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

Description

the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth evolution
the process whereby organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring natural selection
the intentional reproduction of individuals in a population that have desirable traits artificial selection
is a trait with a current functional role in the life of an organism that is maintained and evolved by means of natural selection adaptation
to the total number of fossils that have been discovered, as well as to the information derived from them fossil record
means the ability to survive to reproductive age, find a mate, and produce offspring fitness
the diversification of a group of organisms into forms filling different ecological niches adaptive radiation
the process whereby organisms not closely related , independently evolve similar traits as a result of having to adapt to similar environments or ecological niches convergent evolution
variation in the relative frequency of different genotypes in a small population, owing to the chance disappearance of particular genes as individuals die or do not reproduce genetic drift
collection of evolutionary mechanisms, behaviors and physiological processes critical for speciation reproductive isolation
a population of animals, plants, or other organisms that are separated from exchanging genetic material with other organisms of the same species geological isolation
the action or art of imitating someone or something mimicry
adaptation that allows animals to blend in with certain aspects of their environment camouflage
having the same function but have evolved separately, thus do not share common ancestor. analogous structure
structures or attributes that have lost some or all of their ancestral function in a given species, but have been retained during the process of evolution vegistial structures
underlining anatomical commonalities demonstrating descent from a common ancestor homologous structures
A British naturalist of the nineteenth century. He and others developed the theory of evolution Charles Darwin
believed that living things evolved in a continuously upward direction, from dead matter, through simple to more complex forms, toward human "perfection." jean baptiste lamarck
was a Scottish geologist, physician, chemical manufacturer, naturalist, and experimental agriculturalist. James hutton
