A central assumption of evolutionary theory is that life on Earth had a single point of origin; all subsequent life-forms are descendants of this progenitor organism. This is called the theory of common descent. Evidence for common descent may be found in shared traits between living organisms. This book contains some interesting information about the evolution and continuity of animals. The content of the book will be highly informative to teachers, reasearchers and students alike.
