  1. 1. The Galapagos Islands

  3. 3. • On December 27, 1831, the HMS Beagle launched its voyage from U.K. with Darwin in tow. • Darwin had the unique opportunity to closely observe principles of botany, geology and zoology.
  4. 4. • Adaptation in the carapace as per habitat. • Species living in habitat with food(grass) at low level had round carapace and short neck. • Those living in area with food(grass) at height had long neck and backed carapace.
  5. 5. • The size and shape of the finches’ beaks was due to their adaptation to a particular environmental niche. • Stated two theories from the observations. • Darwin discovered that Galapagos finches have thirteen different kinds of beaks.
  6. 6. • A species is a population of organisms that interbreeds and has fertile offspring. • Living organisms have descended with modifications from species that lived before them.
  7. 7. • More organisms are produced than can survive because of limited resources. • Organisms struggle for the necessities of life; there is competition for resources.
  8. 8. • Individuals within a population vary in their traits; some of these traits are heritable. • The advantageous trait is being carried to next generation.
  9. 9. • Ecuador Government established Charles Darwin’s Research Station at Galapagos. • The place is famous for Darwin’s name and the Giant Tortoise and the natural beauty.
