Neo-Darwinianism is a modified version of the theory of Darwinian evolution that includes modern information on genetics. Therefore, it postulates that mutations in genetic information are what causes new information to develop and eventually results in speciation. Neo-Darwinianism still holds to the theory that natural selection is the driving force of evolution. It also denies Lamarckianism, the idea that traits are inherited not because of genetic mutation but because of environmental pressures.
