What Are The Various Evidences In Favour Of Evolution?

Following are the various pieces of evidence in favour of evolution:

  1. Analogous Organs

    Organs that have different basic structures but perform similar functions are known as analogous organs. For example, the wings of a bird and the wings of an insect have different anatomy but they perform the same function of flying in the air.

  2. Homologous Organs

    Organs with common basic structural design but with different functions are known as homologous organs. For example, forelimbs of a lizard, man, bird and frog.

  3. Evidences from fossil

    Fossils provide evidence for evolution. The fossil Archaeopteryx looks like a bird but it shows a number of other features, that are found in reptiles. This observation provides a clue that birds have evolved from reptiles.
