SCI 230 Week 6 DQ 2

Question:
DQ2: What are two examples of evidence that support the theory of evolution by natural selection? One example should relate to the anatomy or physiology of animals. Locate a website that discusses the evolution of a new species. Do you agree this is a new species, or is it diversity within the same species? Explain your answer.
Response 1
Homologous structures and comparative anatomy look at similar bone arrangements in certain vertebrates. For example, if one was to look at a human arm, a bat wing, a whale fin, a mouse front paw, and a horse fore leg, it would be easy to see there are similar number of bones in each segment of the limb and that these bones are arranged in a similar fashion amongst all species mentioned.
