    I think that animals like Koko who has the capacity to communicate to humans are additional proofs that chimpanzees and humans may have come from the same ancestors as Charles Darwin postulated. As what I'd observed in the video, Koko learned how to communicate using sign language and he expressed his opinion about taking care of the Earth.

    starfish, Green uses the evolution of the starfishes’ eyes. Some species of starfish have evolved eyes that allow them to find food more easily than those species that have evolved without them. Green also relates how some octopi have evolved with copper and the protein hemocyanin in their blood which combine to make oxygen transport more efficient. This enables the octopus to acclimate more readily to nearly any oceanic environment. Green’s final example of evolution is how humans, over many…

    In class today we watched the video, “Your Inner Fish” by Neil Shubin. This video was about the evolution of humans and I found many points that were made throughout this video very interesting. One of the facts that I found most interesting was about fish. Although we have been studying fish this semester along with the other groups of animals, the “road map” that they provided of the different time zones of animals and how they evolved into each other helped me to further understand the…

These snails are known mainly for a morphological trait, the variation of shell thickness within the population. Several studies have been done already to study the evolution of the periwinkle snails shell thickness. Seeley (1986) found that introducing crabs to a population of L. obtusata demonstrated a classic example of Darwinian selection. The snails with a smaller shell thickness were selected against and…

James Hutton, a Scottish naturalist and creator of the theory of gradualism, proposed that changes in…
