  10. Darwin publish theory of?
    On origin on species by means of natural selection in 1859.
  11. note: natural selection in action
    -mechanism of adaptation: individual with the most suitable traits "selected": population slowly reshaped.
  12. Austrian monk-spent 7yrs hybridizing pea plants. he discovered way traits passed on.
    Genes: units of hereditary information, code for traits
  13. Note: Darwinian-natural selection
    mendelian-genetic inheritance
  14. Note:
    gradual genetic change due to:
    selective pressure-natural selection, sexual selection.

    operates at individual level:
    -those with the most suitable traits survive and pass on genes.
     incremental genetic changes reshape population(evolution)
  15. Note: Homo habilis or handy man
