Challenge Questions:

1. In 1859, Darwin and Wallace jointly presented their theory of evolution of species based around the concept of natural selection. Discuss the role of environment in this theory.

2. What does the evidence presented by Dr Sloboda in her seminar suggest about the relationship between the environment, gene expression and inheritance.
