There is a need for common traits in between kingdoms.

After all, all life lives in the same biosphere; hence, there should be commonalities. Moreover, if consider the likelihood of species evolving in co-evolution, there should a range of traits that could ensure such event. And, when taken a step forward, there has to be a set of parameters all species much share so they could coexist, and relate to each other in the planet. Otherwise the food web will collapse and life itself will collapse as well. Hence, factors in traits for functions like transport of materials, response to stimuli, gas exchange, and locomotion are of essence to be commonalities. It ensures the existence and survival of the food web and life itself. Locomotion is a key trait for survival; it ensures the species can protect itself, and migrate if necessary. Chordata have this trait well developed; as mammals, and vertebrates, mice are a prime example of how this trait is crucial. First, locomotion implies a set of structures (organs) and tissues to be in place. That is, there has to be a specialization of cells and structures for locomotion to be feasible and effective. Hence, cells organized into tissue that is specializedand muscles they became. Structures such as bones also need to be developing accordingly; and hence, a new set of tissue, cartilages, is developed in place to connect muscle and bones with minimal friction. This specialization makes the mouse to be fast and able, to move and escape threats. Furthermore, there is the presence of a notochord, which allows the centralized backbone structure that provides stability to the organism. This determines the mobility rate of change the mouse will be subject to. In this front, the mouse had to evolve accordingly what position, and pattern of motility (sinusoidal or otherwise). In addition, if considered the development of brain, along with a nervous cord and sensory, the mouse has an advantage with locomotion. It allows the survival of the species by a set of traits. Without locomotion, mouse will not have developed into the successful individual we know today. Response to stimuli is also very important for the survival of a species. It implies the danger of competition and predation. It is the result of natural selection. In this case, earthworms have been most successful. There is segmentation in the earthworm that allows a nerve cord to be connected throughout surfaces nerves. Hence, there is a need for a brain. Without a brain, it cannot reason in the manner it needs to survive. Like the mouse, there is a need for a structure that can coordinate functions of the rest of structures in the organism. In this case, this response to stimuli computes the sinusoidal motion the worm exhibits. It is a result of the muscles contracted and the direct locomotion of the animal. The brain controls every structure, ensuring the better odds of surviving. For instance, it controls blood flow, a factor directly related to mobility. Evolution has ensures, through natural selection, that there the brain is developed, and set with required structures for its functioninglike blood vessels, heartto allow the survival of the species. This is a result of adaptation, which cause the traits to emerge as the organism faces a changing environment.
