Analogy Phenomenon

view blog view wiki view wiki view wiki

In classical evolutionary theory analogous organs serve the same function but arose from a different evolutionary origin. In Fauceir Theory analogous fauceirs are defined accordingly.

Rational

For evolution to adapt it is sometimes easier to invent a new organ than than to copy an other, even if mobile DNA is considered. A builder would use the raw material at hand rather than importing it.

Examples

  • The classical example is the wing in insects and birds.
  • Behavioral patterns show homology too.
  • Even social behavior from evolutionary distant species can be analogous. The rooster behavior of some human males.
