  113. 113. CHARLES ROBERT DARWIN, 1809-1882 Darwin visits the Galápagos, September, 1835 On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life, 1859 The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex, 1871
  114. 114. The Origin “does not document the origin of a single species,or a single case of natural selection, or the preservation of onefavored race in the struggle for life.”Darwin “marshalled an enormous mass of evidence thatevolution has happened. Yet Darwin never saw it happen.”“Natural selection by itself is not evolution. It is only amechanism … that can lead to evolution … . Natural selectiontakes place within a generation, but evolution takes placeacross generations.” –– Jonathan Weiner, The Beak of the Finch
  115. 115. Darwin’s Finches● Thirteen species, thought to have descended from a common ancestor  Ground Finches: Small, Medium, Large and Sharp-beaked  Tree Finches: Small, Medium and Large  Cactus Finch and Large Cactus Finch  Vegetarian Finch  Warbler Finch  Mangrove Finch  Woodpecker Finch● Some can be found throughout the islands; others are localized● All are rather drab; usually the males are dark in color, while the females are lighter and streaked
  116. 116. “The diversity of beak structure and feeding habits within thisgroup is remarkable. The individual species feed in a variety ofways with each specialized in a particular way. Some eatseeds, some eat insects, some remove ticks fromtortoises, some eat leaves, some eat flowers, some drink bloodfrom seabirds, and there are two species that use twigs orcactus spines to extract insect larvae from holes in the deadbranches of trees.” –– Michael Jackson, Galápagos: A Natural History
