The Largemouth Bass Evolution Paper
Bio/101 Principles of Biology
This paper is on organisms and how they have evolved over the years to ensure their survival. The organism that I chose to discuss is the largemouth bass. Fish are animals that are cold-blooded they have fins and a backbone. Most fish have scales and breathe through gills. There are approximately 22,000 species of fish began to evolve 480 million years ago. The largemouth bass has a torpedo-like shape body that is associated with many fishes.
Bass use their fins to help keep their position, move, steer, and stop. The largemouth bass is an important predator in the ...view middle of the document...
Over the years the coloring of the largemouth bass has made it possible for the species to survive and lay eggs. Largemouth bass growth in the southeast is apparently influenced by climate. In conclusion the largemouth bass has evolved into a predator to be reckoned with the jaws and organs such as pyloric ceaca have made it possible for the bass to adapt to different water temperatures. This has helped in the fact that the largemouth population has grown in recent years in certain areas.
