Origin of Species

Evolution Through the Eyes of Charles Darwin

Who is Charles Darwin?

Charles Darwin is...

A Naturalist whom provided theories that supported his ideology that through a "filter" called natural selection, species around the world evolved over time to meet the standards of their surroundings. Those species that couldn't evolve into the natural habitats surrounding them died off or changed naturally over a course of time.

Upon Learning About the Origin of Species...

Prior to me learning about Natural Selection, I knew that the Theoretical Laws of Evolution was that as times progressed and environments surrounding the animals present during their existence that they over time had adapted to their habitats.

Darwin's Finches

Galapagos Island Finches Natural Selection

The Galapagos Island Finches are a species of birds that are of the same species however the beaks differ as the subspecies become more complex. The beak of the Geospiza Magnirostris is designed to crack open nuts while the opposite is said about the Geospiza Parvula which it's beak is designed to eat grains. At one point in time they were all similar if not then the same however as time progressed and their original sources of food were becoming non existent they began to develop alternative diets that were available in their natural habitats.

Rating and Recomendation

Even though I greatly agree with what is presented to me through the eyes of Charles Darwin and his ideology of natural selection, I still believe that there is more research to be done and more experiments to be run in order to justify the probability that their is indeed Natural Selection in our world today.

Purpose of Writing

Within the time period that Charles Darwin had studied and established his theory of evolution and natural selection, people could have never been able to process the ability of one self evolving over time to meet the requirements of their own surroundings. His true intent was to inform others of his finding and to present his years of studies to the general public.
