key words1
Key Words
  • Analogy- Similar in structure or function, different evolutionary origins.

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
using characteristics to create
Using characteristics to create…
  • A Character Matrix
  • A Dissimilarity Matrix
