Peppered Moth Experiment
By : Burgundy Hunt and Amber York
What Sparked the Discovery
During the late 1940s through the 1950s, it was noticed that there was a reduced number of light colored european peppered moths and an increased number of the darker colored moths in the industrial areas of Great Brittian. This was quiet odd since light colored european peppered moths were dominant over the darker moths. This interesting discovery sparked Bernard Kettlewell to creat an experiment.
