Many people argue that behavior comes from either a person’s environment or from their biology. This can be seen in what many people know as nature versus nurture. One of the major theories that stick out in this argument is the Evolutionary Theory. Alfred Wallace was developing a theory that was just as similar to that of Charles Darwin. Variations are the key concepts that are studied in both of Wallace’s and Darwin’s. The reason this is done is, because variations help to identify why the species evolve. Wallace’s theory does differ from Darwin 's. Wallace’s theory shows that a species will only take on an adaptation if it will be beneficial to the species survival. Now, for the evolutional theory the adaptation is not just a biological factors it is can also be behavioral factors. It is from this theory that behavior can be part of …show more content…
According to Alfred Wallace’s Theory of Evolution, elements that stronger then other in an environment are more likely to continue to exist by being passed down from one generation to another generation. Just like Darwin’s theory factors such as variations play a large role in Wallace’s.
Variations can be factors that can range from environmental, physical, and social backgrounds (Ashford, LeCroy, Lortie 2001). These variations can lead us to learn why it is species has changed over time, why the change transpired, as well as why the factor lead to the species surviving. No one variation is going to be the same with will result in different one species getting a different evolution that another. A biological example of this would be Darwin’s research done in on the Galapagos Islands. A behavioral example of this would be children learning what behaviors are socially acceptable behaviors in public
