There is a fierce competition among individuals within any species,
humans included, to gain access to reproductive privileges. The “fit
test” – a term that signifies the largest, prettiest, and most sexually
attractive members, succeed in predominantly mating and having
offspring, while the less attractive ones often do not. What is the ro
le of such sexual selection from an evolutionary standpoint?

Craig Venter made a new life form (a bacterium) from scratch – ess
entially from computer database, and a few bottles of chemicals:

• If these and other such DNA-based technologies become widely us
ed, how might they change the way evolution proceeds, as compar
ed with the natural evolutionary mechanisms of the past almost 4
billion years?

Is there danger of discrimination based on testing for “harmful” ge
nes? Would you support cloning of life forms? How about a human
clone? What policies can you suggest that would prevent or permit
such practices?

Consider the human eye, an exquisitely adapted organ that gives ri
se to stereo vision in full color (see, for instance, “The Evolution of
Primate Color Vision” by Gerald H. Jacobs and Jeremy Nathans, Scie
ntific American, April 2009 issue, pp. 56-63).
• Explain, strictly from within the framework of Darwinian evolution,
how natural selection “crafted” such an organ.

How do you think we could trace back the evolution of organs with
in our body by hundreds of millions of years – from our reptile anc
estors – by examining coevolution patterns and fitness landscapes
?
 
Discuss, for instance, the “missing link,” Tiktaalik, that has made he
adlines around the world (see “Your Inner Fish” by Neil Shubin).
 
What kind of selection pressures could have been at work here, ba
sed on species adaptations, climate changes, and shifting landmas
ses?

Write a 1,500- to 1,800-word paper that describes Darwin’s mecha
nism of evolution by natural selection.
Include the following points in your paper:
· An explanation of Darwin’s assumptions and inferences based on
his major observations.
· An example of how natural selection may have worked in a popul
ation (for example, moth in New England, drug-resistant bacteria,
giraffes, finches in the Galapagos Islands, or another species you s
elect)
· An explanation of how adaptations help species survive such as
mimicry and camouflage. Give examples of several adaptations an
d explain how they enhance survival of the species.
