Evolution

Home More advice Science

I'm currently studying evolution at school, and I'm really curious as to how races have 'evolved' or 'mutated' etc. For example, Darwin's finches beaks changed due to the geographical position in the world. Is the geographical position of humans also a influencing our appearance? Eg. Asians with slanty eyes, people with black skin, people with white skin, blonde and blue eyed europeans, etc. Seeing as we all have nearly exactly the same make up, are race differences simply a mutation that continued? Was there one standard coloured/shaped human in the beginning of time?
