Convergent Evolution: Why bears and seals are more similar than you thinkScience project video

Discussion

Both evolution and convergent evolution reveal how species respond to the pressures of the environment. Do you think that environment shapes behavior and the physical makeup of a species, or does the species intentionally develop adaptations to fit the environment? Do you think that the environment plays an active role in molding the physical make-up of a species and that the species undergoes a calculated change in response to environmental conditions, or do any adaptive changes occur by chance.

Questions & Answers

What is the difference between a biome and a habitat?

A biome is a larger, more regional area that is characterized by distinct climate and biological communities. Smaller than biomes, habitats are the local areas within the biome that specific species inhabit.
