• The modern concept of biological evolution began in the nineteenth century thanks to the ideas of Lamarck and creationists of the time ( Darwin).

THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION OF LAMARCK • Lamarck proposed use. By contrast, the that the evolution of disuse of an organ or species is a structure causes progression, in which atrophy. the organisms 4-Faced with the causing life forms changing are increasingly environment, there complex and are features in "perfect". His theory organisms called was based on the acquired following principles: characteristics.

THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION OF DARWIN • Life forms are not static but evolve, species change continuously, some others originate and become extinct. The process of evolution is gradual, slow and continuous, discontinuous jumps or sudden changes. Similar organisms are related and descended from a common ancestor. All living organisms can be traced to a single origin of life. Natural selection is the key, in two phases, which explains the whole system. The first stage is the

production of variability: generating spontaneous changes in individuals. The second, the selection through survival in the struggle for life: the fittest individuals, those born with favorable spontaneous changes to address the environment will be more likely to survive, reproduce and leave offspring with these advantages.

Mammals are a kind world. of vertebrates The mammals are the characterized animals most especially because complex and mothers feed their evolved. They can babies through the live in land, fly, or breasts. That gives live in water. them the name. The mammals descended from reptiles. Not appear to be very similar now, because mammals appeared about 195 million ago years. Back then, reptiles ruled the

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MAMMALS • Of general form we can say that the mammals are characterized by the following thing: • They are of warm blood and his temperature is constant. • Most of the mothers are provided with mammary glands. • The mouth is surrounded with lips in order that this way the babies can suck. • They present

• •

abundant glands and, generally, abundant hair. The majority have teeth. They have pulmonary breathing. The circulation is double (pulmonary and general). The majority of they are viviparous.

The naked mole rat: • This animal is a subterranean rodent that lives in complex tunnel systems isolated from the outside world, with individuals who live • in colonies in which only a few are breeding females. • They have the size of a mouse, which lives in arid equatorial East Africa. • A naked mole rat, can live at least getting to reach the thirties. Moreover it is an animal resistant to cancer,

some types of pain and can live without oxygen a long time so hold the record of holding without breathing between mammals. Interested in their incredible abilities, researchers around the world have investigated very thoroughly his life underground.

• The almiqui is known by the common name or solenodontes almiquís in Cuba. They are insectivores own the Antilles and are among the rarest mammals in the world. There are two very similar species: the almiqui of Cuba (Solenodon cubanus) and paradoxical almiqui (Solenodon paradoxus), who lives on the island of La Spanish

(Dominican Republic and Haiti).This animal is a true living fossil whose ancestors of bones found dating back 30 million years. This is a primitive mammal, and of the few who own venom.

• The body has a length of 28 to 32 cm and the tail is from 17 to 27 cm. From nocturnal habits, walks in zigzag their saliva is poisonous: the second incisor on each side of its lower jaw has a slot

connected with a poison gland, the poison is very active: when two of these animals are and fight happens that one of the two dies poisoned because of the opponent bites.

Mammal that put eggs • The platypus is a semi-aquatic mammal species endemic to eastern Australia and Tasmania. • The bizarre • appearance of this egg-laying mammal, poisonous, with beak-shaped snout duck, beaver tail and otter paws baffled European naturalists when they first encountered it. • It is one of the few venomous mammals, males have a spur on the

hind legs that delivers a venom capable of producing severe pain to humans. The platypus is the animal emblem of the state of New South Wales.

• The grizzly bear is a subspecies of the brown bear's largest planet, which usually lives in the highlands of U.S. territory. They can reach weights up to 550 kg, although some • specimens have reached weigh 680 kg. They measure 1 meter to 4 feet, while standing, reaching 2.4 meters. • The muscles of the hind legs are strong enough for

the bear to rely solely on them, and to allow them to walk short distances in bipedal form. Can reach 55 miles per hour when running on 4 legs. They are omnivores and before entering hibernate usually increase about 180 kg.

A grizzly bear killed a trekker in Yellowstone National Park • A hiker who was visiting Yellowstone National Park died after attack by a • grizzly bear in 2011. • The incident occurred 2.5 kilometers from the start of the Wapiti Lake when • a couple of tourists came across a bear and her cubs. • According to park officials, the animal reacted

violently to humans to perceive who were a threat. The man died after the bear attack without him time to transfer him to a hospital, while the woman was unharmed. The last time a person was killed by a grizzly bear attack in Yellowstone was in October 1986.

• The blue whale is the largest creature, • with a 170-ton, nearly 35 meters long, the weight of 22 elephants and giraffes lying over 7. • They feed almost exclusively krill but also small amounts of copepods. The species of zooplankton eaten by blue whales varies from ocean to ocean. An adult can eat up to 40 million krill in a day and can consume during high season power up to 4 tones of krill

in one day. The male sexual maturity occurs at about five years of age, when measured around 20 to 21 m and from females when measured 21-23 m, also at five years.

• The shrews have a light weight of just 2 grams and a head body length, not including their tail, of only 3-5 cm. They are characterized by small eyes and a long snout with whiskers very sensitive. They are similar to a • mouse, but are related to the moles. • They are mammals that are most active. They hunt their food both day and night. Many species,

especially the Europeans eat their own weight in insects daily, and can die if they spend more than four hours without eating. Their food is based on invertebrates, and sometimes can take carrion. Are defended from predators by scent glands that produce an unpleasant odor that makes them unattractive dish for animals with a good nose.

Black rhino: • It differs from the white rhino in color and smaller size (although, however, reaches 1.6 meters tall and weighing 1,500 kilos) it feeds on the leaves of shrubs and low trees to a lesser extent, while the white rhino eating grass on the ground and has a lip straight and wide. • The black rhino

THE WORLD'S LARGEST TOAD • This summer in northern Australia, three biologists have found a toad the size of a dog of small stature. The race was toad Bufo marinus, and has been called Toadzilla. Toadzilla weighs about one kilogram, and is the largest cane toad ever found in northern Australia, as reported by three biologists. Environmentalists

BAD NEWS FOR AMPHIBIANS • Amphibians go to the extinction. 30% of amphibian species on the planet listed as threatened in the catalog of IUCN For decades, researchers study the phenomenon, and one of the latest findings worsens the picture. Frogs, salamanders and caecilians (the three major types of amphibians) may disappear much faster than expected. Scientists have identified three main threats to amphibians: the destruction of their habitat by changes in land use, climate change, and a fungus

called chytrid. These researchers studied the geographical distribution, worldwide, of 5,527 species of amphibians, almost all known. Also looked at what areas are given the three main threats to these animals. They also used computer models to estimate the evolution of these threats until 2080. Will not know anything till then.
