In other words, evolution is a series of changes, some gradual and some sporatic, that accounts for the present form and function of organisms in natural systems. Fossil records of ancient life forms and striking molecular similarities among diverse organisms provide evidence for natural selection and its evolutionary consequences.

For example, continued evolution of human pathogens is posing a serious health problem. Many strains of bacteria are becoming increasingly resisten to once-effective antibiotics because natural selection favors resistant strains.

Organisms and Development

Standard 07: BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTION: Students examine evidence for the evolution of like on earth and assess the arguments for natural selection as a scientific explanation of biological evolution.

Standard Number:1

K-3

Give examples of organisms that lived on earth and are no longer present, and show how they might be related to organisms living today.

4-5

Compare fossils to one another and to living organisms and explain their similarities and differences.

Explain how certain organisms are more likely to survive and reproduce than others in the same environment.
