How did Lamarck and Darwin differ in their thinking about species?

A. Darwin thought that organisms could induce their own changes, while Lamarck thought that change could only be induced by an organism's environment.

B. Darwin thought that change could occur in individual organisms, while Lamarck thought that change could only occur across generations.

C. Darwin thought that genes controlled a species' ability to survive, while Lamarck thought that genes were only one part of a species' ability to adapt.

D. Darwin thought that organisms had to struggle to survive, while Lamarck thought that organisms could make adjustments when conditions became difficult.


Luther Burbank was a plant breeder who developed a strain of potato plant that produced more tubers of larger size than other potato plants that were grown on farms at the time. This strain of potato was also resistant to the potato blight that had wiped out the potato crops in Ireland in the mid-1800s. How did Burbank's process in developing this potato compare to the process of natural selection?

a. Burbank's process was slower.
b. Burbank's process did not affect the genetic makeup of the potato.
c. Burbank's process did not place the potato plant under any type of selection.
d. Burbank's process did not involve environmental pressures to shape the outcome.

For the first one, I think it is either C or D. The second one is D?

  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "Lamarck vs. Darwin differences" to get these possible sources:

    https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=lamarck+vs+darwin+differences&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    Don't just copy the material. Express the ideas in your own words. Although this will take more time and effort, you will learn more.
