Charles Darwin was one of the first to study scientifically, why Earth is home to so many different forms of life. Darwin’s theory, Evolution by Natural Selection , includes two parts. Part one, involves species, which are distinct forms of life, and how they evolve over a period of time. The second part of Darwin’s theory describes reasons for the species changes and this is called Natural Selection. While Darwin began to get recognition for his theory of evolution, a monk from Eastern Europe thought of a concept of his own. Gregor Mendel wondered how offspring inherited traits from their parents. Mendel studied his experiment with common pea plants and other organisms as well. His study proved that traits and characteristics of the organisms go from one generation to the next through hereditary factors, which are now known as genes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
