Which of the following best describes biochemical evidence that would not support the modern concept of evolution? a. a bacterium that uses inorganic materials to produce energy b. an organism that does not undergo cellular respiration c. a species of bacteria that is capable of photosynthesis d. an organism that undergoes both aerobic and anaerobic respiration
Biochemical evidence such as fossil records, geological evidence, comparative anatomy, similar selective pressures, and molecular evidence all prove evolution and indicate the conditions in which early life resided on earth.
Fossil records- transitional forms of modern and ancient creatures imply the time periods of evolution and the environmental factors which forced those changes.
Geological evidence- (e.g. continental drift) can reveal the geographic conditions of ancient environments and the resulting interactions of different life forms.
Comparative anatomy- connects closely related species through similar physical structures.
Selective pressures- different organisms exhibited similar behavioral changes, indicating common ancient geological pressures.
Molecular evidence- organisms with related DNA prove ancient connections between species.
