A Tale of Environmental Pressure, aka Natural Selection: Darwin’s Finches

Darwin's Finches video still

Ever since Darwin first appealed to natural selection as his driver for evolution, that concept has been at the heart of the battle for worldviews. And for many years, one of the top examples of this kind of process in action has been the variation found in finches of the Galapagos Islands.

Today’s video walks us through the careful research of a couple who has spent their lives recording these island populations and why these birds do make good models of what can happen to animal communities facing environmental pressure.

It’s important for both the evolutionary and creationist sides to understand what we are observing in real time on these islands. And it is fascinating to see how the process of speciation occurs and the forces that drive this kind of genetic shift.

Hi, I’m Cheri Fields: 2nd generation homeschooling mom of seven, wife, writer, and science lover.
