Transcript of Evolution Assignment

Assessment 5.01 Evolution Tyra Thompson Stephen Jay Gould Ronald Fisher Theodosius Dobzhansky Cite Sources Ernst Mayr was an English statistician, evolutionary biologist, eugenicist, and geneticist. He was born February 17, 1890 and died July 29, 1962. During his life time he resided in both England and Australia. Fisher is well known for his contributions to statistics by creating ANOVA. ANOVA provides a statistical test of whether or not the means of several groups are all equal. ANOVA "is probably the most useful technique in the field of statistical inference.” was a geneticist and evolutionary biologist. He was born in Ukraine on January 24, 1900 and emigrated to the United States in 1927. He died December 18, 1975. He published work of the modern evolutionary synthesis in 1937. He was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1964 and the Franklin Medal in 1973. The synthesis explains how evolution continues. The synthesis contained evidence crucial to the evolutionary theory. was one of the 20th century's leading evolutionary biologists. He resided in the United States. Ernest Mayr was born July 5, 1904 and passed away on February 3, 2005. His work contributed to the revolution that led to the modern evolutionary synthesis of Mendelian genetics, systematics, and Darwinian evolution. He was awarded the awarded Darwin-Wallace Medal (1958) and Daniel Giraud Elliot Medal (1967). "The Darwin–Wallace Medal is a medal awarded for major advances in evolutionary biology. " "Systematics is the study of the diversification of living forms, both past and present, and the relationships among living things through time." It is mostly genetics. Systematics are used to understand the evolutionary history of life on Earth

was an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science. He was born September 10, 1941 and died May 20, 2002.
Gould's most significant contribution to science was the theory of punctuated equilibrium in 1972. . He also contributed to evolutionary developmental biology, and has received wide praise for his book Ontogeny and Phylogeny.Punctuated equilibrium is a theory in evolutionary biology that says most species will exhibit little net evolutionary change for most of their history. Evolution is now seen as smooth and continuous. Wikipedia.com
