Evolution and Genetics Population Genetics
GENETICS : Finding an explanation for the INHERITANCE OF TRAITS
(Heredity), genetics will also help us better understand EVOLUTION.
- Variation within a population is key for a species to be able to evolve and
Early scientists based many of their theories on life without experimentation
to test them.
Most scientists concluded that non-living things could be transformed into
living things. This theory called Abiogenesis AKA : (Spont
Other Mechanisms Of Evolution
- The number one mechanism that drives evolution is NATURAL
SELECTION. Mutation that creates new alleles is also another significant
driver of evolution.
- There are some other factors/mechanisms that also disturb/change the

Having a true coelom is one of the most important evolutionary adaptations
of the animal kingdom.
The coelom (a body cavity) develops between mesoderm, having a definite

some body structures one often sees a very similar design in these structures despite
the fact that the structures may have a very different function. The number of

Cellular Chemicals :
All life forms are composed of at least one cell, anything smaller than a cell
unit does not have life.
A cell has all the equipment (organelles) needed to sustain life, provided
that it is supplied with the correct chemicals.
The cell uses these amino acids to build new proteins for cells to
grow and repair themselves as well as to make new cells through cell
The blue-prints and processes for building these proteins are quite

Lamarck vs. Darwin:
Lamarcks Theory of Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics:
I. - An organism changes to become more suited to its environment.
- Takes many generations for an appreciable amount of change t
EVOLUTION is defined as the process of gradual change.
- In biology, evolution is the development of a species, organism, or organ from its original
or primitive state to its present state.
