Can you please explain about Darwin's theory of evolution?
Asked by Yastee Shah | 22nd Feb, 2014, 02:21: PM
Darwin's theory of evolution states that-
(i)All species share a common ancestor and all currently existing species at any point in time are descended from pre-existing species.
(ii)One population of a species may diverge if two parts of that population become separated from one another geographically.
(iii)Natural selection is Darwins most famous theory which states that individuals with characteristics which increase their probability of survival will have more opportunities to reproduce and their offspring will also benefit from the heritable, advantageous character.
