This post will go through evidence of evolution of present-day organisms in Australia for Prelim Biology.
Evidence of Evolution: Fauna in Australia
There was a time when kangaroos were taller then the average man and wombats were massive. These were called the megafauna of Australia. This video will go through megafauna in a little more detail.
This is an interesting video on megafauna that may help develop your understanding.
Evidence of Evolution: Flora in Australia
There are various adaptations of Australian plants that have developed over many many years. This video goes through various plant adaptations in Australian plants.
This video goes through some more adaptations.
This is quite a long video about the evolution of Australian plants and animals which may help consolidate this information.
