Concept Info

NAME

Evolution

DESCRIPTION

Evolution is the process of heritable change in populations of organisms over multiple generations. Evolutionary biology is the study of this process, which can occur through mechanisms including natural selection, sexual selection and genetic drift.

108 skos:definition Coevolution is the process by which two or more species evolve in tandem by exerting selection pressures on each other. Examples of coevolutionary systems include host and parasites, predators and prey, and mutualistic or symbiotic interactions.

116 skos:broader sg:ontologies/subjects/evolution
117 skos:definition Cultural evolution is the change over time of non-biological aspects of human society. The process is loosely analogous to biological evolution, although does not necessarily involve Darwinian natural selection, and includes changes in language, art and social behaviour and norms.

145 skos:definition Evolutionary theory is the area that focuses on further development and refinement of the modern synthesis of evolution and genetics. Notable topics include the appropriate level of selection, the relative importance of natural selection and other mechanisms, and the rate of evolution at genotypic and phenotypic levels.

153 skos:definition Experimental evolution is the use of laboratory or controlled field manipulations to investigate evolutionary processes. It usually makes use of organisms with rapid generation times and small physical size, often microbes, to observe phenomena that in large multicellular organisms occur too slowly.
