  • The Argument For Biological Evolution

    An example can be seen with John Endler and his guppies, “What the Grants are to Darwin’s finches, Endler is to guppies.” (Weiner 89). Endler studies guppies from small streams in northeastern South America. His guppies each have unique spots on them just like beak variations in Darwin’s finches. The guppies spots are heritable and “...each guppy inherits its particular palette of colors, and also the general size and brightness of ensemble, from its parents.” (Weiner 89). Natural selection…
