Evidences of evolution

1 paleontology or the fossil record

1.Paleontologyor the Fossil Record

  • The surface layers

    have more complex

    land animals

  • The middle layer

    early vertebrates and


  • The bottom layer has

    simple aquatic organisms

Evidences of evolution

The fossils are formed in sedimentary rock.

Organisms are buried as each new layer of sediment covers the organisms.

The hard parts make a mold in the sediments.

Minerals deposit in the molds and make a perfect cast or copy of the organism.

Some organisms leave traces of their presence that can also be fossilized, such as foot prints, excrement, or nests

    2 comparative anatomy or homologous structures in mammals

    2. Comparative Anatomyor Homologous structures in Mammals

    • The arms don’t look the same.

    • The arms have different functions.

    • The bone structure in the arms is the same.

    • It comes from a common ancestor

    • Our evolution is mirrored in our embryonic development.

    Evidences of evolution

    The longer our embryos are the same the more closely we are related evolutionarily

    This is an evolutionary tree of the

    Enzyme cytochrome-p450

    The more differences there are in the

    Amino acid sequence the less they are


    Dna comparison or hybridization

    DNAcomparison or Hybridization

    • Denaturing: if you heat DNA it pulls apart.

    • If you mix it with denatured DNA from another species and cool it they will aneal or the complementary parts will stick together.

    • If you heat it a second time they will separate.

    • The more complementary base pairs they have the hotter the temperature needed to pull them apart.

    • Species with lots of complementary base pairs are closer evolutionarily.

    5 biogeography global distribution of plants and animals continental drift

    5. BiogeographyGlobal distribution of plants and animals, Continental drift

    In the Galapagos

    and ancestor finch

    blew in on a storm

    from Equador.

    The finch then adapted

    to its new environment.

    New species arose.

    This is called

    adaptive radiation.

    The closer the islands the more closely related the species

    The closer the islands the more closely related the species.

    Evidences of evolution

    As continents moved apart climate changes would also cause adaptive radiation.

    Similar fossils and living species are found in areas once closely connected
