Write a short note:

Embryological evidences

Advertisements

Solution

  1. Embryological evidences arise from comparative study of embryological developmental stages of various vertebrates.
  2. Embryos of different vertebrates appear similar during the initial stages of development and these similarities gradually decrease as the embryo develops.
  3. Embryology can be used as evidence of evolution as similarities in initial stages of development indicate common origin of the animals.

The forelimbs of a frog, a bird and a man show the same basic design (or basic structure) of bones. What name is given to such organs?

 

Some dinosaurs had feathers although they could not fly birds have feathers that help them to fly. In the context of evolution, this means that ______


There are five animals A, B, C, D and E. The animal A uses its modified forelimbs for flying. The animal B uses its forelimbs for running whereas the animal C uses its forelimbs for grasping. The animal D can live on land as well as in water and uses its forelimbs to prop up the front end of its body when at rest. The animal E which respires by using spiracles and tracheae uses wings for flying but its wings are analogous to the modified forelimbs of animal A.
(a) What could the animals A, B, C, D and E be?
(b) Why are the forelimbs of animals A, B, C, D called homologous organs?
(c) What does the existence of homologous organs in animals A, B, C and D tell us about their ancestors ?
(d) Why are the modified forelimbs of animal A and the wings of animal E called analogous organs?
(e) State whether animals A and E have a common ancestor or not.

(i) Sweet potato and potato
(ii) Eye of octopus and eye of mammals
(iii) Thorns of Bougainvillaea and tendrils of Cucurbits
(iv) Fore limbs of bat and whale
