Episode Details

Evolutionary theory provides a foundation for the study of physical anthropology. In this lesson, experts guide students through the development of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. It also brings to life some of the main contributors to evolutionary theory. The theory of evolution by natural selection is illustrated using examples from the Galápagos Islands, monarch butterflies, peppered moths, and a special segment on the Channel Islands fox.
