Divergent Evolution:

- When a species diverges over time into two different species, resulting in a species becoming less like the original one
- Live in different ways than the common ancestor
- Caused by migration or nearby extinction of a nearby environment
- Prime example are the dinosaurs
Convergent Evolution:

- When unrelated organisms evolve similarities when adapting to similar environments
- Live in the relatively same way as each other
- Emus, rheas, and ostriches are prime examples of convergent evolution
