Fossils, key to evidence of evolution
Coyne stated that "transitional species is not equivalent to an ancestral species; it is simply a species showing a mixture of traits from organisms that lived both before and after it." (35).

Also what are the possible forces that drove an organism of the same specie to adapt one specific feature while giving up another feature?
