EVOLUTION
EVOLUTION:
change of a species over time
• Individuals do not evolve; individuals grow and develop
• Acquired traits are not passed on to offspring
• Natural selection is a process that can lead to evolution
EVOLUTION:
change of a species over time
• Individuals do not evolve
• Acquired traits are not passed on to offspring
• Natural selection is a process that can lead to evolution
- a species evolves a trait only if it provides an increase
in fitness
EVOLUTION:
change of a species over time
• Individuals do not evolve
• Acquired traits are not passed on to offspring
• Natural selection is a process that can lead to evolution
- a species evolves a trait only if it provides an increase
in fitness
- variation continues without a selective force
VESTIGIAL STRUCTURES:
structures that have no function and no longer serve a
purpose to the organism
- “residual” structures
HOMOLOGOUS STRUCTURES:
structures from different organisms that have different
mature forms but develop from the same embryonic tissues
• Provides evidence of
common ancestry
