describe how evolution is supported by the fossil record, the anatomical record, and the molecular record
The fossil record supports evolution by the dating and ordering of dinosaur fossils which have been found, showing a progression of changes over a span of time.
The anatomical record is evidence for evolution in the similarities found between embryonic forms of varying vertebrates, homologous structures such as forelimbs, and analogous structures, or similarities brought about by convergent evolution, meaning populations in like environments developing the same traits in adaptation.
The molecular record in support of evolution includes genomic comparisons that confirm correspondence between two organisms' relative evolutionary distance and the number of their genomic differences. ALSO PROTEINS pg 253
Further molecular evidence for evolution is the MOLECULAR CLOCK. 253
