In the following diagram, we see Divergent Evolution (Wolf transforming to Fox and Domestic Dog) and Convergent Evolution where species do not have any common winged ancestors, like Bird, Butterfly, and Bat. In simpler words, Divergent evolution refers to the process by which interbreeding species diverged into two or more evolutionary groups. Whereas, Convergent evolution is when different organisms independently evolve similar traits. A good example of convergent evolution is the similarities between the hummingbird and the moth. Another great example of Convergent Evolution is how sharks and dolphins look relatively similar despite entirely unrelated.
