The importance of the Galapagos Islands in explaining Darwin's theory of evolution
By: Amy Mccann
To begin with, it was a common theory that evolution did not exist, and in fact every separate species had been made by God. It was believed; God created man, frogs, birds etc and they did not have a common ancestor. Darwin however challenged this...

The human brain is the fastest, continually evolving organism in the universe. In spite of all we know about the brain, there is something slightly questionable about using the object we are studying to do the studies. Somehow this catch 22 has caused brain research...

Do Organisms always Evolve into more Complex Forms
By: David Wright
Evolution by definition is the gradual change in a species or population in order for that organism to be better adapted and hence more able to survive, which could either involve a loss or gain in complexity.A key here is to define complexity, do...

The general theory that humans have essentially stopped evolving has never sat well with me. For why should that be the case, what could have told our DNA to stop adapting to its situation, like it has been doing since the first strand of DNA...

Beneath the chilly and murky waters of the deep, swims one of the planet's oldest living species of predators; the shark; whose origins predate the dinosaur by 200 million years. Some scientists speculate that the very first ancestor of the shark was called Cretolamna, who...

Sharks are the great scavengers of our oceans and as a species predate dinosaurs where the oldest fossils are believed 400 million years old, perhaps more. They are predators belonging to the class of Chondrichthyes'; that is: species having a skeleton comprising of cartilage. An...
