Tancin Evolution

evolution process that explains why species change over time
acquired traits traits developed during one's lifetime
inherited traits are features that are passed from one generation to the next
natural selection explains how organisms in a population develop traits that allow them to survive and reproduce. These traits will most likely be passed to offspring
adaptations traits that allow an organism to survive and reproduce in its environments
What was the name of Darwin's ship? HMS Beagle
What makes an animal harder to see in nature? camouflage
selective breeding selectively picking the best traits of an organism and breeding those organisms
homologous structures that look the same but play a different role- example: human arm and cat arm, they may look the same, but many of the cat's bones are smaller allowing the cat to leap and pounce
Evidence of evolution comparative anatomy, fossils, embryology, molecular biology
