Analogous structure:- Analogues structure are the various structure in different that have some function. structure of appearance but do not share a common ancestor.
Example:- An example of an analogous structure would be a bat wing, a bird wing, and an insect wing.
Analogous structure supports the theory of evolution because it shows how different species have evolved similar adaptation. when in a similar environment.
Vestigial structure:- Vestigial structures are structures that were once necessary for survival but over time that that function became either diminished or non-existent.
The first specifically anatomical investigation separate from a surgical or medical procedure is associated by early commentators with Alcmaeon of Croton.
This investigation will allow you to examine homologous, analogous, and vestigial structures, and how each type of
anatomical structure plays a valued role in the collection of evidence for evolutionary change amongst organisms.
Homologous structure:- Homologous structure is a structure in different species that are similar because of their common ancestry this support. evolution because it can prove that many different species all come from a common ancestor and evolved over time to become the species they are today.
Example:- An example of a homologous structure is the dolphin's fin and the human arm.
