    Exaptations - Understanding Evolution

    An "exaptation" is just one example of a characteristic that evolved, but that isn't considered an adaptation. Evolutionary biologists Stephen Gould and Elizabeth Vrba proposed vocabulary to let biologists talk about features that are and are not adaptations: Adaptation — a feature produced by natural selection for its current function (such as echolocation in bats, right). For example, feathers might have originally arisen in the context of selection for insulation, and only later were they co-opted for flight. In this case, the ... [ReadMore..]
