  1. Aristolte
    • Scala natura nature ladder
    • 1200-1300- chain of being
    • linear (had to follow the chain)
    • heirarchiacal
  2. Lamarck
    living things might change in someway somtime
  3. Linneaus
    • creation is branching
    • no so heirarchical ( not better or worse, just different)
  4. William Paley
    • Natural Theology his book
    • perfect design reveals perfect designers(god)
  5. Darwin
    went to med school and then theology school ended up not liking either essentially wanted to just play
  6. Darwin
    Voyage of the Beagle
    • 5 year trip
    • Biogeography= biology of where they live
    • Shared traits ---glyptodont(fossil) looked like armadillo, variety of animals on different islands
    • ***desent with modification - living things are related to things and changed over time
  7. Darwin
    Artifical selection
    Pigeons ->Modification of a species by human intervention so that certain desirable traits are represented in successive generations.

    • "Essay on the principle of population" by Matthyus
    • human atendancy to overreproduce (compettion of sources)
    • supply of food doesn't increase as fact( as population increaseses so does misery and vice)

    Darwin applied this to all living things
  8. Natural selection
    advantagous characteristics to help surevive
  9. Four Postulates of natural selection
    • heritable varation(differences)
    • more organisms born than survive to reproduce
    • differences between those that survive to reproduce and thosese that don't
    • change in the next generation
  10. Industrial Mechanism
    • Peppered moth- dark and light the light was advantagous -> due to the lichens that grow on the tree bark -light
    • before 1850 ~99% light and 1% dark

    • Industrial revolution
    • polutants in soot killed lichens, the tree bark is left behind, the dark moths started to survive ,, select against white form
    • 1985 90% dark
  11. Darwins finches
    • Medium- beaked ground finch
    • 1977- Peter and Rosemary Gramt went to a samll island( Daphine Minor)
    • drought 130-24 mm -> 84% died-----> ones that survived had deeper beaks
    • tribulus--has enough strength to break the seed
  12. Modern Synthesis
    Genetics and evolution
    • hypthesized--> carations -alleles- could introduce new alleles by mutations
    • couldbe be selected for or against(change over time one alleles)
  13. Directional selection
    • pepper moths--color shifted--created an advantage
    • antibiotic resistance
    • 1.) bunch of bacterial including resistant variety
    • 2.) get bathed in antibbiotic. most normal bacteria die
    • 3.) the resistant bac multiply and become more common eventuall, entire infection evolves into resistant strain
    • ex: tuberculosis and penasllin
  14. Stabalizing selection
    selection favoring intermediate phenotypes rather than those at one or both extremes.

    try to amke more homologous (Like each other)
  15. disruptive selection
    • two opposite outcomes/exremes
    • african seed cracker--more on one side of the graph and the other than in the middle
    • selection favoring the two extremes rather than the intermediate.
  16. Change agent
    natural selection
    the survival in nature of those individuals and their progeny best equipped to adapt to environmental conditions.
  17. sexual selection
    change agent
    • non-random mating
    • largest beak natural selection encourages birds to mate with big beaks
    • ex: guppies(south america) fall down ponds and waterfalls as fish move down chain, there are more predators and less prey
    • top of the water males= way more colors at top and less colorful at the bottom due to more predators on the bottom
  18. balanced polymorphis
    change agent
    • easy with heterozygous
    • an equilibrium mixture of homozygotes and heterozygotes maintained by natural selection against both homozygotes.
    • sicle cell anemia Hs Ha no sickle cells HsHs
    • malaria (hard to enter the cell that doesn't )
  19. genetic drift
    random changes in allele frquency (smaller populations)
  20. bottle neck and founder effect
    change agent
    • effect of the 3 boys now effect the rest of the offspring
    • no offspring can have the precious groups traits only ones who survived the bottle neck
  21. gene flow
    change agent
    • movement of genes bwtween isolated populations
    • ex: panda bear only eat bamboo but need big territory
    • like to be alone (minus mating)
    • with icrease of toads and whatnot the more they become solidarlly refined "isolated population"
    • encourage mating of the genes between the isolated populations (panda can now cross roads"
    • ex" red panda bear- zoo trade pandas to promote different genes
  22. species
    group of similarly constructed organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring
  23. population
    group of organisms of the same area and naturally interbreed
  24. prezygotic mechanisms temporal isolation
    cicads don't mate due to age difference
  25. mechanical isolation
    boy parts and girl parts don't fit
  26. ecological isolation
    live in different habitats
  27. behavioral isolation (birds and mammals)
    • if mating patterns or rituals don't do the right call or flying pattern the won't mate
    • sometimes mating occurs but no fertiliztion occurs
    • sometimes it does occur and zygots form
    • hybrid inviability= don't survive birth
    • hybrid stentility = survive birth but can't reproduce
  28. allopatric speciation
    due to geographic isolation(great wall of china or pollen)
  29. sympatric speciation
    • (wheat) no barrier
    • two different wheat forms that reporduce and get double chromosomes (different forms of wheat) then it doubles again
  30. Darwin--desent with modification--natural selection
    • biogeography- differnt forms of similar organisms in different geogrphical locations
    • anatomy
    • homologous stuctures- same underlying physical structures modified for different purposes
    • analougous structure 0 body parts with different physical sturctures that share teh same function or purpose
    • convergent evolution-arms bones of all animals dinosaur to dolphin
  31. Branching descent
    vestigial structures
    • structures taht have no function in a particular species, but are functional in that species evolutionary relatives
    • human ex: body hair coccyx
    • whales" pelvis girdle
    • snakes: develop hind limbs
  32. embryonic development
    • early early stage looks similar and have gill slits
    • inherited ancestory

  34. fossil records
    process of fossilization
