There are different theories as to why and indeed when bipedalism emerged in hominids and one way to explore this phenomenon is to look at the present day behavior of species like chimpanzees and see how this is different from quadruped species. The most obvious advantage that bipedalism gives is height. This can be used to observe the environment and detect threats... ?What are the...

Evolutionary concepts such as Darwinism and Lamarckism have recognized the role of environmental factors in the evolutionary development of a particular species. Perhaps the best example of this is the famous Darwin’s finches that belonged to the same ancestry but owing to the different seed types present in the different islands, they radially adapted for survival, thus giving rise to several species mildly different from the original ancestral ones. Often owing to several environmental factors mostly disharmonic ones, speciation... How does the environment cause the evolutionary development of...
