Evolution in Real Time!

Research on morphological changes in finches on the Galapagos islands not only led to Darwin's formulation of his theory about natural selection and evolution, but is now clearly observable in real time!  

Could this be partially due to man's influence on the environment, with its impacts on genomic integrity for all living species?  

Perhaps this is something to also think about, the next time you are considering an 'antibacterial' soap or a 'touch up' of your hair ...  

Take care!
