...Origin of Species INTRODUCTION How did the human race evolve on earth? Why, how and when was life first formed on earth? These questions have been a continuous topic for debate since the ancient times. Gradually, assumptions were formed that it was God who had created the life on earth. But the thought was quite firmly contradicted by Darwin’s theory for the ‘Origin of Species’ that had marked the turning point of biological studies. It not only led the foundation of a revolutionary thought to interpret the evolution of mankind and many other species, but also acted as a key to many scientific theories which were further applied for the preservation of various animal genuses to maintain... ?Darwin:...

...Origin of Species Natural selection was a revolutionary idea by Charles Darwin however simple itis. Despite the fact that it is simple, people have understood the theory and still misunderstand it up to present day. One scholar, Ernst Mayr tried to break It down in his book; One Long Argument (1991) and managed to identify five facts that would help explain how this theory works and added just three inferences to it. The very first conclusion of the three is drawn from the three facts that Darwin realized in the world as he studied it. The first being the fact that living organisms often produce more off springs than themselves to replace them in the planet. This, he though ,might lead... Darwin The...

Struggle for existence-Because populations do not generally increase rapidly in size there must therefore be considerable competition for survival between the organisms.
