Origin of Speciation
A closer look at how the many different species of the modern day have developed from the beginning of time, and how they are classified today.
This paper shows how all animals came from the same origin but have evolved in many different ways including habitat isolation, behavioral isolation, and mechanical isolation. These all can tie in to Darwin’s summary of his finches in the Galapagos Islands. This paper takes a closer look at how natural occurrences can split a population into two different species.
When Darwin saw that the geologically young Galapagos Islands had already become populated with many plants and animals known nowhere else in the world, he realized that he was visiting a place where many different species have been created. The islands are named for the giant turtles that live there, among with many other unique residents. After visiting the Galapagos, Darwin wrote in his diary: Both in space and time, we seem to be brought somewhat near to that great fact that mystery.”
