What is evolution?

Question asked by: knowitall

This is the name given to the theory of life, and why modern life is as it is. Evolution refers to the gradual change that occurs from one lifeform to another over time. It therefore describes the process by which life has developed from the most basic living matter to the varied and complex lifeforms we see around us today.

Attributed to Charles Darwin, the process behind evolution is natural selection, namely that random variations occur and that the fittest variants survive and live to breed another generation.
