Darwin and Natural Selection
In this activity from ARKive, students look for similarities between the basic body plans of different vertebrates as evidence of evolutionary change.
This customisable PowerPoint presentation builds the scientific explanation of natural selection by illustrating four key observations:
All organisms produce more offspring than survive to adulthood.
Populations remain more or less constant in numbers.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
