Pleistocene, oh Pleistocene, wherefore art thou, Pleistocene?
You have gone the way of the dinosaur, and the dodo.
– Except, wait – that’s not right, we actually still have dinosaurs. Like: crocodiles, and alligators, and anyway birds are actually just feathery dinosaurs if you believe that movie Jurassic Park.
And dodos we wiped out. So much for survival of the fittest. Well that’s what you get for being a *flightless bird*. Stoopid *flightless* birds. Make up your mind. If you’re going to be a bird, you FLY.
The theoretical framework is the foundational theory that is used to provide a perspective upon which the study is based. There are hundreds of theories in the literature. For instance, if a study in the social sciences is about stress that may be causing teachers to quit, Apple’s Intensification Theory could be cited as the theory was that stress is cumulative and the result of continuing overlapping, progressively stringent responsibilities for teachers that eventually leads to the desire to quit. In the sciences, research about new species that may have evolved from older, extinct species would be based on the theory of evolution pioneered by Darwin.
