Old answer: the scientists found them in the 2 regions and

Mesosaurus was significant in providing evidence for the theory of continental drift, because its remains were found in southern Africa and eastern South America, two far away places. As Mesosaurus was a small freshwater organism, and therefore could not have crossed the Atlantic Ocean, this distribution indicated that Africa and South America used to be joined together. Indeed, all the world's continents were joined into one supercontinent called Pangaea in the time Mesosaurus existed.

What could explain the distribution of mesosaurus fossils?

The theory of plate tectonics easily explains the distribution of mesosaurus. When mesosaurus was alive, all of the continents were massed together into the supercontinent Pangaea. Therefor, South America and Africa met because there was no Atlantic Ocean, so the distribution of mesosaurus makes complete sense.

What is wegeners evidence that Pangaea once existed?

He had evidence from Climate- because fossils of plants forming in places without the ideal temperature were found and the same plants found at another place with the right temperature. Fossils- fossils of the reptiles mesosaurus and lystrosaurus found on continents separated by ocean and neither could swim that great of a distance in salt water, and Land Features- Mountain ranges in south America match up with the mountain ranges in Africa, like a jigsaw- puzzle Hope this helps :)

Explain how you could create a distribution of means by taking a large number of samples of four individuals each?

As the sample size increases, and the number of samples taken increases, the distribution of the means will tend to a normal distribution. This is the Central Limit Theorem (CLT). Try out the applet and you will have a better understanding of the CLT.


Did the mesosaurus swim back and forth across the atlantic ocean?

It is not likely that the mesosaurus swam back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean. This animal did not have the right body type that would allow for this type of travel. It was also a fresh water animal that could not survive in salt water.
