    studies on Mexico’s red-crowned parrot — a species that has been adapting so well to living in cities in California and Texas after escaping from the pet trade that the population may now rival that in its native country. The research comes amid debate over whether some of the birds flew across the border into Texas and should be listed under the Endangered Species Act. Parrots in U.S. urban areas are just starting to draw attention from scientists because of their intelligence, resourcefulness and ability to adapt. There is also a growing realization that the city dwellers may offer a population that could help save certain species from extinction. Parrots are thriving today in cities from Los…

    Sir- I am writing you on this day, the 24th of November 1859, on the account of todays publication of your research titled "On the Origin of Species". I myself, James Hutton, have dedicated my days to research similar to your own. I believe you may be interested in my findings. We have run into similar issues as well, Darwin. Before we had our research and the scientific methods, we had the bible. Now, according to this book the Earth was only a few thousand years old, but upon inspection I…

    Are Humans Unique Species

    To what extent are Humans a Unique Species? We like to believe that humans are a superior species, highly intelligent and beyond the realms of the animal kingdom, however, are we really as unique as we like to think, what makes us so special? It was once believed that humans were the only animals capable of using tools, and this is what made us no longer just ‘animals’. In the 1960s when chimpanzees were first observed using twigs to retrieve termites from wooden trunks, as a form of tool, it…

    What is an invasive species? According to the National Invasive Species Management Plan, an invasive species is defined as “a species that is non-native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health”. Invasive species will look like they belong in the environment they are taking over, however, more than likely they are over-powering a native species in their own habitat. Would you be able to…

    been the dominant invasive species on the planet. As they have increased in population, their habitats have invaded the habitats of many native species. As natural habitat decreases, one of two outcomes can occur for the invaded species. One, the extinction of the species in the invaded region, or their evolution of “domestication.” This domestication, or human commensalism, develops as a species continues to breed in a human-occupied territory (Brown et al. 2013). For insects requiring a…

    Prompt 1 One of the greatest and most renowned biologists of all time, Charles Darwin, wrote a fantastic novel The Origin of Species. The Origin of Species begins with an extraordinary image of existence as coexistence. Darwin describes this through the process of how multiple beings rely on each other for survival. Morton describes this as, “Water and air are like hair and feathers. Living and nonliving beings become the medium in which other beings exist.” (Morton 61) He also goes on to say,…

    This book describes the theory of evolution as “the central unifying principle in biology.” While the idea of evolution had appeared before Darwin’s time (by others including Darwin’s grandfather, Erasmus Darwin) it is in November 1859 that Charles Darwin formally presents his idea in On the Origin of Species. What makes this work so important is not just the idea of evolution, but that Darwin provides the key mechanism, natural selection, for evolution. Through natural selection, species with…

    Invasive Species

    Invasive species are easily comparable to the explorers of the old days. Explorers could be helpful by introducing new supplies, like horses, during the big Columbian Exchange. Explorers could also be largely negative, bringing disease and slavery into the nations they conquered. Explorers sometimes just set up trade relations and left well enough alone. Much like these explorers, invasive species have the propensity to help, hurt, or assimilate into their new surroundings. Experts on invasive…

    evolution of biological species this is according to the Sage’s English dictionary and thesaurus. It is the continuous change in the genes of an existing specie until a formation of the new specie arise altogether. It is a result of two specie groups ceasing to share allele such that the genetic differences grow to the point of speciation. Many scientists have come up with different theories in an attempt to define and explain speciation, though different they all agree that for an organism to…
