5 True/False questions

  1. descent with modificationprocess by which descendants of ancestoral organisms spread into various habitats and accumulate adaptations to diverse ways of life


  2. natural selectionthe process by which individuals with inherited characteristics well-suited to the environment leave more offspring on average than do other animals..this causes the organisms to adapt to the developed environments around them


  3. vestigal structuressimilarities amoung unrelated species that are result of convergent evolution.


  4. fossil recordcontibution that an individual makes to the gene pool of the next generation


  5. Cladogramtype of phylogenic tree that suggests ancestral relationships amoung species constructed from 2 way branch points.
