This blog treats the "Descent With Modification From A Common Ancestor" concept as two interacting components:

(1) Descent with modification;

and

(2) Descent from a common ancestor.

However, the view that species-to-species inheritance traces a lineage back to a common ancestor is false if, between its pre- and post inheritance period, the genome's trait complement is augmented with traits from genomes not in the lineage..

If so, then a genome's trait complement is developed, at least in part, by processes other than species-to-species inheritance and thus suggests that non-inherited traits originate by means other than by recognized Darwinian Descent With Modification events.

The field's literature abounds with examples, both hypothetical and evidence-based, of an animal's genome trait complement that constitutes body-plan characteristics/traits not acquired by species-to-species inheritance.

This blog's intention is to collect a representation sample of these examples that establishes the plausibility of the implied non-heritable origin of traits assembled during genome development.
