Taking a suitable example, explain how they support the theory of Organic Evolution. Size: KB. Evolution has resulted in the formation of several complex species from simpler species due to variations, genetic drift and natural selection. This does not mean that one species gets eliminated when new species are formed or that the new species are better than the older species.

It will be shown that both mechanism and vitalism are related to the experimental climate of the time in which they were popular.
