A hypothesis for the evolution of whales based on the fossil record can be found in certain characteristics found in living cells.
The animals that are related to each other have the same genes, but they don't have the same resemblance to the modern whales.
They spent some of their time in fresh water and ate fish, which is why they were wolflike meat eaters.
Their skull was full of long related organisms.
They were about the size of a male sea lion and had long legs.
The eyes were closer to the sides and still high on the skull.
The neck aided in underwater hearing.

Pro transitional islands are isolated from other landmasses.
Next to your model, list 4 key characteristics that geography has played in the transitional form.
Most endemic island species are related to nearby islands or the mainland.
It feeds mostly on insects, mice, and fruits.
About 16,000-18,000 years ago, aquatic animals peer out of the water during the last Ice Age.
A thick wall around the middle ear of a gray fox was a trait of its ancestors who were from the mainland.
It is not found in other mammals.
The extinct genera of whales are pakicetus, Ambulocetus, Remingtonocetus, Rodhocetus, and Dorudon.
All modern species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises are included in the order Cetacea.
This simplified representation of whale evolution is a type of diagram called a phylogenetic tree, which is explained in Chapter 25.
The genera described in this tree are not depicted as direct ancestors to modern whales, but they all share common ancestors.
The evolution of whales made them better suited to an aquatic environment.
Australia has a few species of bats and rodents that have migrated to the country in the past.
Australia has more than 100 species of animals that are not found on any other continent.
Marsupials are a group of mammal species whose young are born in a very immature condition and then develop further in the mother's abdominal pouch.
The process of natural selection can be seen in the study of plants and animals that have the same characteristics.
Explain how geography played a key role in the evolution of the island fox.
The third example of convergent evolution is revealed by the to be cut off from the mainland.
The analysis of fishes that live in cold water has been going on for 16,000-18,000 years.
There is a gray fox on the mainland.
The smallest island fox is an example of dwarf fluids.
Among different species of fishes, one of five different genes of natural selection in which a smaller size provides a survival and has independently evolved to produce antifreeze proteins.
The evolution of major animal groups is SHEET CONformation.
The first mammals arose around 200 mya.
Australia is connected to the other continents by the same antifreeze protein.
The first placental mammals, which have a long internal gestation and structure of the protein is largely composed of helices, are rich in the amino acid glutamine.
Natural selection results in the same adaptation to a particular environment in the species shown in this figure.
The snouts of the anteater and the echidna are called ductive success because of genetic variation.
They show cases in which genes are more likely to be passed on to future generations.
dif factors often determine which individuals will be successful parents, and environmental characteristics have arisen independently two or more times.
In artificial selection, the breeder chooses parents with certain characteristics that are desirable from a human perspective.
Charles Darwin's obser istics influenced his theory of evolution.
Humans have been breeding pigeons for hundreds of years.
The parents of a domesticated species can be either natural or artificial.
Dog breeders have produced breeds with distinctive features by selecting individuals with certain alleles.
The dogs in this figure have the same genes that affect their size, shape, and fur color.
Many of these genes are different among these dogs, allowing dog breeders to pick and choose which dogs they want to breed with.
There are breeding strategies that can be modified.
The charac modifies the traits in a species.
All small breeds from the original wild species have the same ticular allele of this gene.
These varieties are all members of the same species, and they are almost absent from large breeds.
They can breed to produce offspring.
Broccoflower, a vegetable produced from a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, can be found in the grocery store.
The six agricultural plants have the same alleles as the wild mustard plant.
They differ from each other in how they affect the formation of stems, leaves, and flowers.
There is a case in point.
There is a similar pattern of bone arrangements with low oil content.
Corn plants were selected for breeding based on the oil content of the kernels.
163 ears of corn had an oil content between 4% and 6%.
It dropped to less than 1% in the other group.
Let's look at other observations of the evolution of living organisms.
The bones are the same.
The human arm, turtle arm, bat wing, and whale flipper are all related to the trait origi.
Their relative sizes and shapes are vastly different.
This homology may involve more than one feature.
As noted by Theodosius Dobzhansky, mologous sets of bones have evolved into many observations regarding the features of living organisms, which can't be understood in any meaningful scientific way except as among humans, turtles, bats, and whales.
The embryo is not present at birth.
Second observation is that every human embryo has a tail.
The tail of the bones was found.
Both of the common carotid arteries are used for studies in certain families of birds.
Other vessels have assumed the function of their veins due to their descent from a common ancestor.
All living species rely on the genetic code to translate their genes.
All or nearly all of the biochemical pathways are evolutionary relics.
Minor changes in the structure and function of the structure of the structure of the organisms in which it is func involved have occurred.
All species use tional.
Natural selection maintains functional structures in popula oxygen, which is the majority of species on our planet.
If a species changes its lifestyle so that similar proteins that together make up an electron transport chain lose their purpose, the selection that would normally synthase would be lost.
The structure of living organisms is no longer functional.
Taken together, they show that such phenomena arose very early in the origin of its size and shape.
Natural selection may eventually eliminate life and have been passed to all forms.
The forms are derived from an interrelated group of common ancestors.
Different species are revealed by analyzing genetic sequences.
The same type of gene is found at the adult stage in many organisms.
There are temporary similarities between genes from different species.
It is revealed during development in certain organisms.
