    Answer:

    Darwin was one of the greatest scientists who ever lived. He wrote the book ‘The origin of species’. Darwin was known not only for the theory of evolution as we know it today, but also the foundation that biological sciences are based on. Darwin was very worried that people would reject his theory, so he collected a huge amount of evidence. He took evidence from the fossil record and from his own collections. He talked to animal breeders and animal collectors. He proved that the theory of evolution is based on the idea that all species are related and gradually change over time. His postulates is what gave him the title father of evolution

    Postulates of evolution:-

    1) Individuals within species are variable

    2)Some of these variations are passed on to offspring

    3)In every generation, more offspring are produced than can survive

    4) The survival and reproduction of individuals are not random

    The individuals who survive and go on to reproduce the most are those with the most favorable variation, and they are naturally selected.

    Example:-

    If an animal has to do the same task over and over again, it’s body gradually changes to make the task easier. So if a deer reaches higher and higher into trees for food, day after day, it’s neck will gradually stretch as it gets older.

    If a deer’s neck grows longer during it’s lifetime, all it’s babies will be born with long necks too.

    Hope this helps.
