Evo-cat-ionary Biology

Courtesy of my friend and fellow geoblogger Callan Bentley, here's a biology-themed post. So far, Geokittehs has stuck mostly to geology and physics (e.g. Schrödinger's Cats), but I see no reason why Geokittehs can't venture into biology and other sciences as well.

Callan writes:
Evolution counts as an aspect of geoscience, right? 
This is a series showing the adaptive value of different color morphs in a population experiencing changing landscape colors - industrial melanism, first demonstrated by the peppered moth and now by Geokittehs.  
The cats belong to my former student Lindsay Wilson.
And here are the pictures which Callan sent:





Brilliant. Just brilliant, Callan and Lindsey. Thanks for sharing these amazing pictures here on Geokittehs!
