What are the fundamental similarities and differences between lamarckism and darwinism?

10 months ago

Both lamarckism and darwinism are evolutionary theories as opposed to fixism, both admit the existence of processes that caused changes in the characteristics of the living beings in the past.

They have however different explanations for those changes. Lamarckism combines the law of use and disuse with the law of the transmission of acquired characteristics to explain the changes. Darwinism defends the action of the natural selection.
