Unformatted text preview: animals. 4. Explain why beak size in Darwins finches provides a classic example of evolution by natural selection. 5. Recognize how artificial selection by humans results in evolutionary change. 6. Understand why studies of fossils, homology, development, imperfect structures, vestigial structures, and biogeography provide important information supporting evolution. 7. Describe how the molecular record supports evolution 8. Describe and give examples of convergent evolution. 9. Understand that the time necessary for evolutionary change is extremely variable....
