Darwin aboard the “BEAGLE” to spend 5 weeks exploring the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands, 926 km west of continental Ecuador.
There are 18 main islands of the archipelago. One of the island is Darwin island. It is named in honor of Charles Darwin, and it is one of the smallest in the Galapagos Archipelago with an area of just one square kilometer. In each island has different climate and animals are different, even though they are just a few kilometer away.
Isn’t it weird?
“Darwin marveled that a human tribe could survive so inhospitable and bleak an environment, but despite its rigors, the Fuegians did not seem to be dying out.”
People are awesome! Even though, it was harsh environment, we can adapt to it. I think it is very hard for them to survive in that kind of environment but I think their goal is to survive and they can survive. Isn’t that cool?
Fuegians are the native dweller of Tierra del Fuego, at the southern tip of South America.
“Aristotle had maintained that there was a natural procedure from plants to plant-animals to animals and then, by graduated steps, to man.”
Does this mean we come from plants or used to be plants with green stems!? I can’t believe this; I used to have green body with leaves. It was unbelievable that animals evolve from plants because plants don’t even have eyes or ears.
Charles Robert Darwin
He was the first naturalist that was mentioned in this book about evolution. He was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England on 12 February 1809 and died on 19 April 1882. He demolished the old theory about evolution with two books:
ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES
by means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.
THE DESCENT OF MAN
and Selection in Relation to Sex.
Evolution by Ruth Moore
This book is about the change in the inherited characteristic from generation to generation for a long period of time.
Ruth Moore is a journalist who arrived at her interest in evolution in a round way and now she is one of the country’s best-known and most respected writers of science for the general readers.
Isn’t it exciting when you do something you never think you will do?
