It is widely accepted that some unrelated plants exhibit similar characteristics under similar environmental conditions, a process known as convergent evolution
," said the co-author.
Divergent and convergent evolution
in metastases suggest treatment strategies based on specific metastatic sites.
Acceptance of convergent evolution
and directional selection within "created kinds" has risen in the twenty-first century among CS authors.
It would not be the first time that species in different evolutionary lines separately evolved similar characteristics, a phenomenon known as convergent evolution
Then they took the research a step further and asked whether these mutations could explain a known convergent evolution
WRS also links its living collection with dinosaurs through the Same Same But Different trail, a feature on convergent evolution
The book then reaches gradually backwards in time, discussing how bipedalism moved us out of the trees and onto the savannahs; convergent evolution
of different classes of flying animals; the influence of swimming on the development of vertebrate organization and fins-to-limbs; how animals' needs for movement logically produced a head-to-tail axis and widespread bilateral symmetry; and even how the advent of a complex centralized nervous system developed in service to locomotion.
Marsupials provide the best-known examples of convergent evolution
, and they include some species found in this remarkable radiation that have no counterparts anywhere in the world.
Relicanthus daphneae is a classic example of convergent evolution
, the independent evolution of similar features in species of different lineages.
As monotocous and polytocous species are not monophyletic, the inference of episodic evolutionary history from which their traits formed through convergent evolution
is somewhat complicated.
The answer lies in convergent evolution
- when almost identical features or developments happen in different species.
is less of a problem in trees that are based on genetic evidence, Springer says.
