Thoeries of Evolution

Thoeries of Evolution Evolution is the process by which living organisms originated on earth and have changed their forms to adapt to the changing environment. The earliest known fossil organisms are the single-celled forms resembling modern bacteria; they date from about 3.4 billion years ago. Evolution has resulted in successive radiations of new types of […]

The theory of Evolution

The theory of evolution, as set forth by Charles Darwin in 1859, stated that all plant and animal life evolved over long periods of time from simple to more complicated forms through mutation and adaptation. He also taught that only the fittest of each species would survive. He further postulated that the first living cell […]

Cycles Of Seed Evolution

The Basics. Sunlight plays a much larger role in our sustenance than we may expect: all the food we eat and all the fossil fuel we use is a product of photosynthesis, which is the process that converts energy in sunlight to chemical forms of energy that can be used by biological systems. Photosynthesis is […]

The Evolution of Radio

Introduction Radio is a broadcasting electronic medium which involves the transmission of audio signals by the modulation of specially produced electromagnetic waves via frequencies that travel with a speed just below that of light (Garratt, 1994). They are called specially produced waves since the normal properties of radiated waves are systematically altered (modulated) in terms […]

Man’s Evolution

The history of man’s evolution can hardly be complete without any mention of technology and its immense contribution to civilization. But what exactly is technology? It is difficult to denote the impact of the technology in general without defining the term itself and its origins. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, technology is a “discourse […]

Personal health records are essentially individual patient details, which is usually needed for identification, classification, administrative, and clinical applications (Alder, Maureen, & Beckley, 2004). The field of personal health records has undergone significant evolution overtime from especially with regard to health care environment, state of personal health information technology, and the respective supporting systems, which […]

The Four Forces of Evolution and Variation

Evolution refers to change over time in the genetic composition of natural populations. Natural selection plays a vital role in adding adaptation, accumulation and preservation to the new desired genetic states. The accumulation of small but observable micro evolutionary changes necessary for the development of new species occurs over a long period of time (Haviland, […]

Evolution of Italian Wall Lizards

Natural selection is an important process in evolution where biological characteristics in a given population become either less or more common due to differential reproduction of the organisms. The presence of heritable genetic variation that leads to fitness difference is an important condition required for natural selection to result in speciation, adaptive evolution and novel […]

Evolution and Genetic Mutations

Part A Microevolution is the one that is responsible for the emergence of new species. This is because microevolution involves changes in the genes of an organism (Krogh, 2004). Macroevolution is not responsible for emergence of new species because changes in a species over time do not lead to the emergence of a new and […]

Outline Darwin’s account of human evolution in “The Descent of Man”

This essay will be looking at how well does Darwin’s account of human evolution in “The Descent of Man” hold up today. In doing this I will look at the process of natural selection – the process which creates the survival of an evolved human. The essay will take the form of two arguments. The […]

The Evolution of Man

There is much debate over how exactly the human species evolved (6). Just how humans proliferated remains one of the great mysteries of science (5). The most logical and widely accepted scientific theory on human evolution today is the molecular basis of life, giving us exceedingly more evidence for Darwin’s theory of Evolution. This is […]

Evolutionary Arms Races

“… Thus I can understand how a flower and a bee might slowly become, either simultaneously or one after the other, modified and adapted in the most perfect manner to each other, by continual preservation of individuals presenting mutual and slightly favourable deviations of structure. ” (Origin of Species, 1857) Darwin was describing the interactions […]
