Essay about Human Evolution and Adaptation

637 Words3 Pages
Over the course of evolution, humans have evolved to adapt the ever-changing conditions to improve their chances of surviving. Is there still room for natural evolution or has the time come for us to use our technological innovations and further our development beyond previously thought possible by biological means. Past trends have shown that as time has passed, significant body structures have changed to counteract the changes to our environment. The changes that have been most significant are: dentation; brain size; muzzle angles; average body weight, skull structure. Will these continue to change and progress along similar trend lines, or has the time come for the evolution of our species to become technologically driven? As humans…show more content…
Over the course of evolution, humans have evolved to adapt the ever-changing conditions to improve their chances of surviving. Is there still room for natural evolution or has the time come for us to use our technological innovations and further our development beyond previously thought possible by biological means. Past trends have shown that as time has passed, significant body structures have changed to counteract the changes to our environment. The changes that have been most significant are: dentation; brain size; muzzle angles; average body weight, skull structure. Will these continue to change and progress along similar trend lines, or has the time come for the evolution of our species to become technologically driven? As humans have evolved, the dentation has adapted to improve our chances of survival. But, how will the dentation change as humans continue to evolve. Previously, technological and environmental pressures have helped As time has passed, the canine size has decreased from being prominent with the mouth to being medium size with relation to the rest of the teeth size. As humans have evolved from prehistoric ancestors to increase our chances of survival. Muzzle angles have been one trait that has continued to change as species have continued to evolve. Previously muzzle angles have changed as a result of environmental and technological pressures. The muzzle angles have decreased as a result of a shrinking dentation and an increasing brain size. Although
