Evolution is the cumulative change in the heritable characteristics of a population. Fossils, selective breeding and homologous structures have provided scientists with evidence that support the theory of evolution. As they started to study fossils they realised that these were not identical but had similarities with existing organisms. This suggested that organisms changed over time. Selective breeding of domesticated animals also provides this evidence as the domestic breeds have similar characteristics to the wild ones and can still breed with them. As selected wild individuals with desirable characteristics were bred, over time this resulted in a more desirable species from a human point of view.
