    Concerted evolution

    The tendency of the different genes in a gene family to evolve in concert; that is, each gene locus in the family comes to have the same genetic variant.

    Analogous Structures

    Structures in different species that look alike or perform similar functions (eg. the wings of butterflies and the wings of birds) that have evolved convergently but do not develop from similar groups of embryological tissues, and that have not evolved from similar structures known to be shared by common ancestors.

    Amniotes

    Amniotes: The group of reptiles, birds and mammals. These all develop through an embryo that is enclosed within a membrane called an amnion. The amnion surrounds the embryo with a watery substance, and is probably an adaptation for breeding on land. Study Also: What was the Drain of Wealth during British rule?

    Natural selection

    The process by which an organism with helpful adaptive qualities are permitted by nature to transmit their genetic information to offspring. It is also the process by which an organism with harmful qualities is removed form the environment.
