explain how the theory of evolution is supported by evidence from the fossil record, comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, bio geography, molecular biology and observed evolutionary change.

(studying this for AP Bio test, feels good man) Fossil Records: shows the large amounts of time in which simple organisms have evolved into complex organisms Comparative anatomy: in many different types of vertebrates, many bones are similar, indicating a common ancestor in the past, these bones are homologous in different vertebrates Comparative embryology: many embryos of developing vertebrates will look similar and develop similar structures in its respective time in the womb Bio Geography: many fossils and creatures are found in such distant places that it is impossible for them to have migrated, only because the Earth was once a large land mass (Pangea). And many animals of the same special developed some differences to cope with the surrounding environment. Molecular Biology: similar DNA sequences, genomes Observed evolutionary change: changes in the alleles of a population, mutation, genetic drift, etc.
