This definition encompasses small-scale evolution (changes in gene frequency in a population from one generation to the next) and large-scale evolution (the descent of different species from a common ancestor over many generations). Evolution helps us to understand the history of life." University of California Berkley Dogs evolved from wolves: Thanks to Hedvig Francke for providing Closed Captions in Swedish.

Analizar e interpretar datos para proveer de evidencias que apoyen que la diversidad de organismos es el resultado de la evolución, considerando:

  • Los postulados de la teoría de la selección natural.
  • Los aportes de científicos como Darwin y Wallace a las teorías evolutivas.
