Variation Between Species: A Ground-Breaking Study of Evolution in Action

This activity introduces and explores a long term scientific study on finches in the Galapagos by Rosemary and Peter Grant and the importance of this breakthrough study.

Learning objectives

  • Science: Variation between species and between individuals of the same species means some organisms compete more successfully, which can drive natural selection. 
  • Changes in the environment may leave individuals within a species, and some entire species, less well adapted to compete successfully and reproduce. 

Students' outcomes

  • To be able to explain the process and effect of natural selection on the finches of Daphne Major.
