Spring 2019 Due at the beginning of activity section next week Your homework should be typed, single spaced, 12-point font, with one inch margins. Spelling and grammar will be considered when assigning grades, although not as much as content. For full credit, you will need to do more than simply copy directly out of this handout or the textbook. You must appropriately cite ideas that are not your own. Directly quoting your textbook is highly discouraged for full credit. Rephrase ideas in your own words. If you must directly copy one or more sentences, use quotation marks and cite the source. You should also cite the textbook or the scientific paper once at the end of an extended explanation, even if you have rephrased the text in your own words. For example, if three or more sentences in a row provide a simple textbook summary, and you have not added any new ideas of your own, you should cite the textbook at the end of that section. 1.) Your essay should be submitted electronically through Turnitin on your activity section Blackboard site. On your Blackboard site, click on the "Assignments" link on the left. Within that folder will be a link for this assignment. 2.) Also bring a hard copy to next week's activity section. For full credit, the hard copy and the upload to Turnitin must both be turned in by the beginning of next week's activity section. Based on the readings from Carroll and Bergstrom and additional sources if necessary, write a short essay where you develop these topics: a. 1. Darwin had two fundamental insights (he himself referred to them as "two great laws") about the process of evolution: 1) natural selection, 2) common ancestry of all living things. Describe these two fundamental contributions that Darwin made to the study of evolution. State which of these two contributions was more important and why. (There is no single correct answer for this last part. State your opinion and back it up with evidence.) 2. What did Darwin observe in the Galapagos and what did he conclude? 3. Darwin was influenced by the work of many scientists who came before him. These are a few of them and some of the concepts they established and/or popularized: Carl Linnaeus-binomial classification system b. Georges Cuvier-comparative anatomy; extinction Jean-Baptiste Lamarck- "Theory of organic progression" d. Charles Lyell - uniformitarianism Thomas Malthus - population checks Choose three (3) of these people and describe specifically how each of them fueled Darwin's thinking --- i.e. How did the works of these three people contribute to Darwin's conceptualization of his “two fundamental insights”? In your opinion, which of these three people had the most influence on Darwin and why? (Again, there is no single correct answer to this. State your opinion and back it up with evidence). C. e.

Charles Darwin's Contribution to Evolution
Introduction
Charles Darwin, through his works, contributed significantly to the science of
evolution. Among his contributions were "the two great laws" on the process of evolution, the
law of natural selection, and the common ancestry of all living things.
Question 1
Law of Natural Selection
The law seeks to explain the adaptation and speciation of living things. In his voyage,
Charles referred to natural selection as the principle with which each variation of a
characteristic is deemed essential. According to (Carrol, 2009), Charles Darwin, via the law
of natural selection, seeks to expla...
