analyze and evaluate the relationship of natural selection to adaptation and to the development of diversity in and among species
What is natural selection?
Survival of the fittest.
Survive long enough to pass your genes off to the next generation.
Populations evolve. Individuals do not evolve

8B- define taxonomy and recognize the importance of a standardized
taxonomic system to the scientific community
Part 1 - Define Taxonomy and Why is it important to have a standard?
Part 1 - Taxonomy = Classification
the branch of science concerned with classification
How do you remember the order of classification? (From Broadest to Specific)
-Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species
- Dear King Philip Came Over For Good Spain.
Why is it important to have a standard naming system?
-To avoid confusion
- So everyone knows what organism is being discussed
**(Think of translating languages.)**
Scientific Naming System is a Binomial Nomenclature.
--> Genus and species
