Evolution VocabularyAnswer with more than one word have a space between each work. If you get stuck the puzzle should provide you two letters to help you get started. Hint - Use your Evolution PowerPoint notes.
Related structures that are inherited from a common ancestor, Selective breeding to enhance desired traits among stock or crops, A group of 16 islands that are a part of Ecuador, Differences among individuals of a species, Short time scale events (generation to generation)that change the genotypes and phenotypes of populations, Gradual change over a long period of time leading to a new species, All members of a species that live in an area, To resemble its surroundings, All of the alleles in a population, Idea that as individuals of a species reproduce, they change over time; these changes could lead to a divergence from a common form, When populations can%27t breed due to geographic separation, The frequency of a specific allele; how often it appears, The accumulation of differences among two groups of the same species which can then become so different that they can not longer interbreed, The formation of a new species, When one species is able to resemble another, Structures that are present in an organism, but serve no apparent purpose, An inherited characteristic that increases an organism%27s chance for survival; could be behavior, sound, appearance, etc., Long time scale events that create and destroy species, Occurs as a population%27s genes and frequencies change over time creating new phenotypes, Individuals who inherit characteristics most fit for their encironment are likely to leave more offspring than less fit individuals,
