Analogous Traits

Convergent Evolution: Have come up with the same answer from different backgrounds

Hand Homology

May look different: but have a common ancestor, the same bones used for different things.


Today s lab

Today’s Lab

  • Use Skull characteristics to figure out similarities (aka relatedness)

  • Build phylogeny

  • Use DNA to look at similarities

  • Build phylogeny

  • Compare
