Answer in Brief

Explain the importance of Anatomical evidences with examples.

Advertisements

Solution

  1. Anatomical evidences are the similarities in structures and anatomy between different organisms.
  2. The hand of a human, foreleg of ox, flipper of whale, and forelimbs of bat appear different superficially or morphologically.
  3. Also, the function of these structures is different in different animals.
  4. However, there is a similarity in the structure of bones and bony joints in the organs of these animals.
  5. These similarities indicate that the animals evolved from a common ancestor thus providing proof of evolution.
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
