    acquired trait:
    A phenotypic characteristic, acquired during growth and development, that is not genetically based and therefore cannot be passed on to the next generation (for example, the large muscles of a weightlifter).
    adaptation: Any heritable characteristic of an organism that improves its ability to survive and reproduce in its environment. Also used to describe the process of genetic change within a population, as influenced by natural selection
    adaptive landscape: A graph of the average fitness of a population in relation to the frequencies of genotypes in it. Peaks on the landscape correspond to genotypic frequencies at which the average fitness is high, valleys to genotypic frequencies at which the average fitness is low. Also called a fitness surface.
    adaptive logic: A behavior has adaptive logic if it tends to increase the number of offspring that an individual contributes to the next and following generations. If such a behavior is even partly genetically determined, it will tend to become widespread in the population. Then, even if circumstances change such that it no longer provides any survival or reproductive advantage, the behavior will still tend to be exhibited unless it becomes positively disadvantageous in the new environment.

Read an introduction to phylogeny Read tips on navigating the Phylogeny Wing Use our Web Lift to Taxa to look for a particular group of organisms. Visit the UCMP Special Exhibit Journey into Phylogenetic Systematics to find out how biologists reconstruct the pattern of events that led to the diversity of life, and learn why this is so important.

    Description Since George Gaylord Simpson published Tempo and Mode in Evolution in 1944, discoveries in paleontology and genetics have abounded. This volume brings together the findings and insights of today's leading experts in the study of evolution, including Ayala, W. Ford Doolittle, and Stephen Jay Gould. The volume examines early cellular evolution, explores changes in the tempo of evolution between the Precambrian and Phanerozoic periods, and reconstructs the Cambrian evolutionary burst. Long-neglected despite Darwin's interest in it, species extinction is discussed in detail.

    Paleontology and Evolution The Department of the Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago offers a rich environment for doctoral research across a broad spectrum of topics in paleontology and stratigraphy, ranging from the biomechanics of individual organisms to global tectonics. In addition, we have an active community of evolutionary biologists, taxonomists and paleontologists elsewhere on campus and at the nearby Field Museum of Natural History. The combination of the University's Department of the Geophysical Sciences and Committee on Evolutionary Biology, along with the Field Museum, makes Chicago one of the foremost centers for evolutionary biology and paleobiology. Faculty in this Department whose research focuses on paleobiology and historical geology are:

    On Evolution
    A statement by The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology The fossil record of vertebrates unequivocally supports the hypothesis that vertebrates have evolved through time, from their first records in the early Paleozoic Era about 500 million years ago to the great diversity we see in the world today. The hypothesis has been strengthened by so many independent observations of fossil sequences that it has come to be regarded as a confirmed fact, as certain as the drift of continents through time or the lawful operation of gravity.
    fishes. At the same time, techniques of geologic dating, including magnetostratigraphy, radiometric dating of many different isotopes of common elements, lithostratigraphy, and biostratigraphy, have provided independent lines of
    evidence for determining age relationships of the sediments in which fossils are found. This evidence from the principles and techniques of chemistry and physics support the finds of paleontology based on paleobiological and geological analyses, making the theory of evolution the only robust scientific explanation for the patterns of life on Earth.

    There are many other great places to look on-line for information about evolution. Here are a few of our favorites:
    Understanding Evolution , a new site launched in February 2004 to meet the needs of K-12 teachers. The site provides an informal on-line course covering essential science content, as well as a searchable database of resources for the classroom.
    Talk Origins Archive , a rich source of information about evolution and the evolution/creation controversy.
    National Center for Science Education website, a nationally-recognized clearinghouse for information and advice on teaching evolution in the classroom.
