Even if all of them did fossilize many would be too hard dig for many of them. And also it is highly unlikely that most would be found complete‚ due to the number of natural disasters and processes that have happened from the animal’s death to whenever it is discovered.

    On the Origin of Species chapter IV outlines Darwin’s proposal on how a new species is generated via natural selection over a long period of time. In Darwin’s theory of speciation‚ he proposes that all organisms within a species must express some degree of variation‚ which allow for organisms with the most advantageous variations to produce the most offspring (Darwin 10) This also means that the variations must be heritable from one generation to the next. In chapter IV Darwin uses the examples variants
