its retrospective, wants selective for is from the parent generation, BUT THOSE may not be the best for their generation just cause it was for the parents Evolution only acts on variants that exist Evolution doesn’t foresee our future needs Evolution is gradual Having a fast reproducing species, evolution happens fast basically depends on reproduction of the species When evolution happens quickly it comes under punctuated equilibrium: ex: when something big happens it changes genetic makeup quickly Common Questions: Humans did not evolve from apes; humans are apes We didn’t evolve from them, our classification is the ape family

A chimp didn’t turn into a person, humans and chimps had a common ancestor when it went instinct the gene pools diverged causing chimps to divert to 2 new individuals How are partial adaptations useful? View from dawkins: Just cause you cant imagine something evolved doesn’t mean it doesn’t evolve It happened you just don’t know how Missing Links Idea came from the pic from “humans are apes” there is no chain from apes to humans, we are looking for transitional fossils from apes to humans (which is found) Humans continue to evolve After infancy most people are lactose tolerant We needed wisdom tooth in past when we didn’t cook food, but now we do so don’t need it (jaw size also reduced) Populations that use cesarean section head size at birth has gone up Isn’t it just a theory?

    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.
