Example text

Inferring phylogeny from DNA requires the familiar principle of similarity: the more alike the DNA of two species, the closer their relationship, or alternatively, the more recently they had a common ancestor. Determining the coding sequence of a DNA sample is a routine laboratory task. As an example, we might compare DNA from lions, tigers, domestic cats, and dogs. ) We would 26 Chapter 3 find DNA sequences from lions and tigers most similar, hence lions and tigers have the most recent common ancestor.

These are examples of normal environmentally contingent actions by individuals of a particular species, which collectively compose the behavioral repertoire of that species. Any claim about the behavioral similarity of living and fossil species presumes approximately similar environments. Second, physically similar species often act differently in ways that reinforce their reproductive isolation, especially if their geographical regions overlap. Distinctive breeding songs, for example, can be important in identifying the forty-nine species of sparrows in the United States, many looking so much alike that experienced birders lump them together as LBJs (“little brown jobs”).

Prozac and other antidepressive drugs work by increasing the concentration of serotonin in the gaps between neurons. When some chordate evolved into a fish, fishlike behaviors were enabled by new structures added to the spinal cord and brain, including olfactory bulbs, optic lobes, a cerebellum, hypothalamus and pituitary, and small cerebral hemispheres. As fish evolved into amphibians, then amphibians evolved into reptilelike amniotes, and then amniotes into birds and mammals, new forms of behavior were associated with new or modified brain parts.
