What ship did darwin travel on while working on his reasearch?
Name the scientist that gave Darwin the Idea that members within a species will always struggle in a fight for resources?
Name the scientist that gave Darwin the idea that the present is the key to the past?
A horse breeder takes a horse that has won several races and breeds it with another horse that has won several races. These two horses produce 3 colts over their lifetime, and the breeder takes the fastest of these orses and breeds them again. After several generations of such a process, the breeder has produces a horse faster than any other in the world. Is this an example of microevolution or macroevolution?
If a colony of bacteria were to give rise to an amoeba, would this be an example of microevolution or macroevolution?
Of the four basic data sets discussed in this module, which ones provide evidence for macroevolution?
three (Structural homology, fossil record, and molecular biology)
Of the four basic data sets discussed in this module, which ones provide evidence against macroevolution?
Some creationists say that all of the ideas set forth in Darwin's book, The Origin of Species, are wrong. Why is this not true? Because we can observe ____________, part of his theory.
According to macroevolution the amino acid sequence of a rat or ape should be closer to that of a human?
The Neo-Darwinist hypothesis differs from the hypothesis of darwin by saying that _____ add information to the genetic code thus changing the organism.
Puntuated equilibrium attemptes to solve the problem of there being no _______________.
Bacterium can become immune to antibiotics. Is mutation the only way this can happen?
The fact that representatives of all major animal hhyla can be found in some of the lowest sedimentary rock in the geological column is often referred to as the _____________.
Did Darwin ever recant his scientific beliefs?
Suppose a herd of horses were living in an area where food near the ground was scarce but there was plenty of food in the trees. If, after several generations, the horses gave rise to giraffes that could easily rach the food in the trees, would this be an example of microevolution or macroevolution?
Consider a fish population that is trying to survive under conditions of extremely cold water. If, over several generations , the fish develop thicker fat layers under their skin for better insulation, is this an example of microevolution or macroevolution?
The difference between microevolution and macroevolution, from a genetic point of view, is that in microevolution the _______ does not change while in macroevolution the ___________ would have to change.
Macroevolutionists claim that Australopithecus aferensis (nabraska man) and Archaeopteryx are ________.
Darwin's hypothesis is sometimes called the survival of the fittest because his theory says that there will be a _______ between all life forms for resources and the right to reproduce.
House sparrows are small, seed-eating birds that are native to parts of europe, northern africa, and the middle east. In 1852 and spring of 1852, one hundred sparrows were imported to the United States. These sparrows reproduced and spread over the country. The origional sparrows were smaller that the sparrows today. Is this micro or macroevolution.
In order for the geological column to be interpreted as evidence for macroevolution, you must assume that each strata of rock was laid down individually over long periods of ____, according to the speculations of Lyelle.
Archaeopteryx has ____ and _____. This leads macroevolutionist to think that it is an intermidiate link.
Structural homology has changed from evidence for macroevolution to evidence against macroevolution. This is because the __________ of the organisms is different, not similar.
