What is adaptive convergence?

10 months ago

Adaptive convergence is the phenomenon by which living beings facing the same environmental pressure (problems) and undergoing genetic variability and natural selection incorporate similar (analogous) organs and structures (solutions) into their bodies during evolution. For example, the fins and the hydrodynamic body of fishes and dolphins, phylogenetically distant animals.
