The Galapagos mockingbirds differ only slightly in size, shape, and coloration.

Nesomimus melanotis

Nesomimus macdonaldi

Nesomimus parvulus

Nesomimus trifasciatus

Darwin reasoned that they are similar because they share a common ancestor.

N. melanotis

N. macdonaldi

N. trifasciatus

N. parvulus


Evidence for evolution l.jpg
Evidence for Evolution shape, and coloration.

  • Evidence that Species are Related

    • Geographic proximity of similar but distinct species.

    • Homologies: structural, developmental, and genetic.

Both the chick and

the human have gill

pouches and tails

  • Evidence that Species Change over Time:

    • Law of succession

    • Evidence of extinctions in the fossil record

    • Vestigial traits

Ichthyosaur

Common dolphin

Whales and

dolphins

Monotremes

Ichthyosaurs

Pterosaurs

Elephants

Marsupials

Synapsids

Dinosaurs

Primates

Rodents

Lizards

Birds

The members of lineages

between the dolphins and

ichthyosaurs do not have

adaptions like:

- streamlined bodies

- long jaws filled with teeth

- fins and flippers

The dolphin and ichthyosaur

lineages are far apart on the

evolutionary tree, suggesting

that they are not closely

related

As shown in the two boxes

above, the loci found in the

Hox and HOM complexes

of fruit flies and humans have

similar sequences and are in

the same order on their

chromosomes
