Evolution And Population Dynamics
An adaptation is a characteristic of a population that develops over time that proves beneficial to that population in surviving and reproducing in a new habitat. Describe one (1) adaptation that modern humans have made that might not have been shared by our distant ancestors but that allows us to survive and reproduce better in our current habitat. Provide at least one (1) reason as to why you chose that adaptation in your response. Next take a stance in regards to the following question: “Do you agree that humans are still evolving through natural selection?” If so, what sort of adaptations might be beneficial to our future generations? If you don’t agree, provide a response that supports your rationale.
