This post will go through convergent and divergent evolution for Prelim Biology.
Convergent vs Divergent Evolution
Convergent evolution is when two species with different ancestral origins develop similar characteristics, while divergent evolution refers to when two species diverge from a common ancestor and develop different characteristics.
This video will go through convergent and divergent evolution and relate it to The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection.
