We will take a look at the finches on the Galapagos islands and see how they led Darwin to his theory of evolution.We will also look at behavioral adaptations, how they occur and how they too help in the survival of a species. Adaptations can be natural or selectively bred into an animal so we will discuss the how and why...
Students will be able to define adaptation, genetic mutation, natural selection, selective breeding Students will be able to explain the difference between natural selection and selective breeding and the pros and cons of both.
