Subject: Convergent Evolution


This is an interesting article on convergent evolution. Humans
occupy the "tool making and using" niche. That means that
another species that opted to travel along the tool-making path
would end up looking very much like humans.


"However, when University of Queensland researcher Bryan Fry and
colleagues tested the serpentine DNA, the results showed that
they were separate species, and not even close relatives... This
is a case of convergent evolution, wherein different species
evolve independently but end up looking quite similar... Or, as
Yong put it, convergent evolution is 'when different species
turn up at life's party wearing the same clothes'."
