Biological Evolution Change in the heritable characteristics of a population of organisms over the course of generations
Small scale evolution (microevolution) Change in gene frequency in a population from one generation to the next
Large scale evolution (macroevolution) The descent of different species from a common ancestor over many generations
Two things that evolution explains Unity (common ancestry) and diversity (modifications)
Theory A well-substained explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses
Natural Selection Individuals in a population who are better adapted for their way of life in the current environment survive to leave more offspring with their traits- favorable traits will increase in proportion over time
VISTA Useful way to remember elements of natural selection; variance, inheritance, selection, time, adaptation
Ultimate source of genetic variation Mutation
Phylogeny Evolutionary history; lines of evolutionary decent from a common ancestor
Clade A group of organisms that include a common ancestor and all the descendants of that ancestor
Monophyletic Another word for clade
Homologous Two species use a shared character because it was inherited from a common ancestor
Analogous Two species have a similar character that is not due to common ancestry
Convergent Evolution The process of similar selection pressure resulting in a similar independently evolved trait
Adaptation Only found in natural selection; populations evolve in such a way to become better suited to their environment as an advantageous trait becomes more frequent
