  • Natural Selection Experiment

    evolution. Natural selection is a non-random sorting process, however, other mechanisms, such as genetic drift, a random sorting process, can also lead to the evolution of a population. Genetic drift may lead to a change in the frequency of alleles in a population, however the change will be unpredictable. In this experiment, we will be emulating the processes of both natural selection and genetic drift to model the evolution of a population of weevils. The “weevils” in this experiment will…

  • Erin Brodwin Analysis

    Explaining Evolution Evolution has always been a relevant topic, whether being explained in learning environments or thoroughly investigated by scientists, why is it so important? Evolution tells the story of how humans, as well as other species, came to be. The articles “12 Examples of Evolution Today” by Erin Brodwin and “A Possible Break in One of Evolution’s Biggest Mysteries” by Peter Brannen are both compelling with the information they provide, and contain insights into the world of…

  • Male Vs Female Brain Essay

    There are roughly thirty-seven trillion cells present in the human body. Each of these cells have a specific function to perform like propagating one’s genes or carrying oxygen towards the different parts of the body. Some of these cells make up the skeletal system which is comprised of two hundred and seven different bones. Some of these cells make up the various organs in the body like the lungs and the heart. Some of these cells are responsible for the organs responsible for procreation, the…

  • Drugs In Brave New World Essay

    In our modern era, drugs and technology play increasingly progressive roles. Their presence can bring about positive changes, like medical breakthroughs or long-distance communication, but they also may elicit severe repercussions. If people, from politicians to scientists, begin to abuse substances, humanity may suffer. It can be extremely difficult to understand these dynamics, but Aldous Huxley is one such author who examines the significance and potential of these instruments. In Brave New…

  • Summary Of Evolution Theory By Natural Selection

    traits and genetic codes of biological populations over successive generations which can give rise to biological diversity. Generally, evolution also define as the process which modern organisms have descended from ancient ancestors and the process by which different kinds of living organism are believed to have developed from earlier forms during the history of the earth. The genetic differences that are heritable will passed on to their offspring or the next generations. The genetic…

  • Analysis Of Nature Vs. Nurture: Binary Of Genes Vs Environment

    Nature vs. nurture is a commonly referenced conflict, and in scientific terms, we usually define as a binary of genes vs. environment. The idea is that you’re shaped by your experiences, which are external stimuli, and your inheritance of traits, which constitutes an internal stimulus. A new study strongly suggests that the dichotomy is, at best, a myth in that environment plays a role in shaping how traits are expressed. Perhaps the best albeit equally subjective evidence of how intricate the…

  • The Very Worn Caterpillar Lesson

    The lesson called Home Grown Caterpillars is a lesson about the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly (life cycle process) while creating a three dimensional piece of art to express idea, experience, or story. The story associated with this lesson is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The art piece is a replica of the caterpillar during a butterfly’s life cycle made out of grass seed, soil, stockings, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes. This lesson would be considered an art enhanced lesson…

  • The Rett Syndrome

    This report breaks down Rett Syndrome (RTT) in order to inform and educate patients and their family members on the genetic and symptomatic components. To begin, RTT is a post-natal neurodevelopmental condition that almost exclusively affects females. Its characteristic symptoms include an initial normal development followed by a period of regression where the child loses the ability to perform motor functions and may exhibit autistic-like symptoms. The regression period is followed by a plateau…

  • Compare And Contrast Charles Darwin's Theory Of Natural Selection

    Charles Darwin, a naturalist and geologist, published his theory of evolution in 1859. This showed that in the animal kingdom, species were continually evolving by adaptation and selection. Charles Darwin's published theory of evolution proposed that this process had occurred through the two theories: 'survival of the fittest' and the 'process of natural selection'. The theory of survival of the fittest stated that, the best physical specieman of the species and only those in the best shape and…

  • The Role Of Mismatch In Evolutionary Psychology

    Are we humans perfectly fitted to the world we live in today? Evolutionary psychology suggests this may not be the case. An important concept in evolutionary psychology is mismatch (link is external) (1). Evolutionary mismatch occurs when the environment that organisms are adapted to, via a slow process of biological evolution, changes so quickly and intensely that it hinders these organisms to fulfill their reproductive needs. Take an example from nature. Deforestation has changed the habitats…
