Beagle. Darwin’s evolutionary theory has ﬁve major components. Its most basic proposition is perpetual change, the theory that the world is neither constant nor perpetually cycling but is steadily undergoing irreversible change. The fossil record amply demonstrates perpetual change in continuing ﬂuctuations of animal form and diversity following the Cambrian explosion 600 million years ago. Darwin’s theory of common descent states that all organisms descend from a common ancestor through a branching of genealogical lineages.
Most metazoans are biparental, and reproduction follows a period of organismal growth and maturation. Each new generation begins with a cohort of individuals born at the same time. Of course, individuals of any cohort will not all survive to reproduce. For a population to retain constant size from generation to generation, each adult female must replace herself on average with one daughter that survives to reproduce. If she produces more than one viable female offspring the population will grow; if fewer than one, the population will decline.
