That the genetic variations ultimately producing increased survivability are random and not caused by God or by the organism’s own striving for perfection.
That natural selection, development and evolution requires enormously long periods of time, so long, in fact that the everyday experience of human beings provides them with no ability to interpret such histories;
That this struggle for existence culls out those organisms less well adapted to any particular ecology and allow those better adapted to flourish – a process called Natural Selection
That all life, biologically considered, takes the form of a struggle to exist – more exactly, to exist and produce the greatest number of offspring
hat biological types or species do not have a fixed, static existence but exist in permanent states of change and flux;
Process of culling out organisms less well adapted and favoring better adapted organisms
Divergent- is the accumulation of differences between groups which can lead to the formation of new species, usually a result of diffusion of the same species to different and isolated environments
Convergent- is the process by which unrelated or distantly related organisms evolvesimilar body forms, coloration, organs, and adaptations.
allopatric speciation- a mode of speciation that occurs when biological populations of the same species become isolated from each other
Sympatric speciation- is the process through which new species evolve from a single ancestral species while inhabiting the same geographic region.

Domain phylum class order genus species
Fossil- physical remains of organism that may show evolutionary from then to now
Biogeograohy common ancentral species now species mate with animal that are around them
Evidence of evolution
Coevolution- when two or more species reciprocally affect each other's evolution
comatative embryos- similar genes in where the embryos look the same
Molecular evidence- number of DNA nucleotide base .
Evolutionary observe d- The species with the better adaptation to the environment
species could change over time
inheritance of acquired characteristics.
