how did fossil evidence from cuvier / lamarck and geological theroies from hudson / lyell help shape darwin's view
Darwin now had evidence tht species have changed over time through the sights of strata. Darwin disagreed w/ some of lamarck ideas ,such as: use and disuse or organisms have an innate to become more complex. but did agree on variation through inheritance but in a different way.
The voyage of the Beagle be able to describe observations made at both locations and how they influenced darwin.
he assumed tht the finches would b similar from back home due to the same climate./... but he was wrong the Galapagos finches were much like the finches from S.A. bcuz they originated there and began to live on these islands adapting to their environment and slowly evolving. One of the adaptaions wer lengths of beaks and this was significant bcuz the size of food they had to eat.
