Evidences of evolution. 1.Paleontology or the Fossil Record. The surface layers have more complex land animals The middle layer early vertebrates and amphibians The bottom layer has simple aquatic organisms. The fossils are formed in sedimentary rock.
Evidences of evolution
have more complex
early vertebrates and
simple aquatic organisms
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
