Homologous vs analogous structures

Homologous Vs. Analogous Structures


Homologous structures flowers broccoli and cauliflower evolved from mustard

Homologous Structures (flowers)Broccoli and Cauliflower evolved from Mustard


The bones of the bat mouse and human are homologous

The bones of the bat, mouse, and human are homologous.

The wings of the bat, butterfly, and bird are made of different coverings, and insects do not have internal bones. The wings are analagous. They have the same function and shape, but are made differently.


Convergent vs divergent evoultion

Convergent Vs. DivergentEvoultion


Analagous structures help to show convergent evolution

Analagous structures help to show Convergent Evolution


Convergent evolution

Convergent Evolution

  • Organisms that are NOT related evolve similar traits as a result of evolving to fit into similar environments or ecological niches.


In different parts of the world ant eating animals developed long snouts and powerful digging paws

In different parts of the world, ant eating animals developed long snouts and powerful digging paws.

Convergent Evolution


Divergent evolution

Divergent Evolution

  • a group from a specific population develops into a new species. In order to adapt to various environmental conditions, the two groups develop into distinct species due to differences in the demands driven by the environmental circumstances.


Homologous vs analogous structures

Darwin’s finches show a path towards divergent evolution. The birds’ beaks are shaped differently so they can occupy different niches in the ecosystem.


Embryonic development

Embryonic Development

  • Analyzing the embryos of

    animals shows that the

    more closely related the

    animals are, the more alike

    their embryos are during

    development.


Evolutionary branching tree

Evolutionary Branching Tree

  • Like a family tree, it shows how organisms evolved from common ancestors that may no longer be alive on earth today.

  • Evolutionary branching trees can show how adaptation leads to new species over time.
