Evolutionary principles
are incorporated into medicine, agriculture, conservation biology, natural
resource management, and environmental science. Evolutionary principles can be
used to minimize unwanted life-history evolution and harbor the greatest evolutionary
diversity and potential (Hendry et al., 2011). Many scientists have studied
evolutionary principles and history to develop international sustainable
development goals, or SDGs for short. Some of these SDGs include gene therapy
to treat disease and altering conservation strategies to protect land with high
levels of genetic diversity (National Science Foundation,
2014). While using evolutionary principles to tackle diseases seems
like a good idea, I believe it can become a very slippery slope. Like gene
therapy, I believe evolutionary principles could possibly be used in a
discriminatory way. For example, someone could try and justify the use of
evolutionary principles to bring change to those with certain qualities they do
not personally like. So, in cases where it is extremely monitored, I believe
evolutionary principles could be applied to human reproduction behavior in
order to eradicate deadly diseases.
According to evolutionary psychologist,
patterns of behavior have evolved to natural selection, in the same way that
physical characteristics have evolved. Because of natural selection, adaptive
behaviors, or behaviors that increase reproductive success, or kept and passed
on from one generation to the next. Evolutionary principles must be
applied to human reproductive behavior to successfully get a good mate and
produce good offspring. Apostolou reveals the extent of parental attempts to
control the mating decisions of their offspring and investigates the qualities
parents seek in prospective in-laws. He also demonstrates how much of a human
mating behavior has been shaped by parental chores and that parents have a
significant influence and sexual selection: the traits they favor in the
children mates are selected and increase in frequency in the population.
One theorist developed a model of life that incorporates environmental
influences, contextual influences and heritable variations. He argues that both
physically are psychologically stressful environment delay maturation and the
onset a reproductive competence. The social contacts is also important, and
concentrate on the opportunity for upward social mobility as contextual
influence that results in delaying reproduction and lowering fertility in
the interest of increasing investment in children. Finally, he shows the
cultural shifts in the social control of sexual behavior have had
differential effects on individuals predisposed to high versus low investment
reproductive strategies.
