GENERAL BIOLOGY II LABORATORY TRIP TO THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY EVOLUTION OF VERTEBRATES Compiled by Drs. Marcy Kelly and Josh Schwartz GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS 1. The purpose of this trip is to familiarize you with a fascinating resource for the natural sciences in the metropolitan area. The following series of questions will lead you through the evolution of vertebrates (a subject we won't have time to cover in lecture). You must make your own travel arrangements. As of the time of this writing the Museum is open Monday through Sunday from 10 AM to 5:45 PM.

A $11.00 contribution is suggested (but, not required) for students. 2. The Museum is located on Central Park West between 79th and 81st in New York City. You can drive to the Museum (however the parking lot is small and expensive) or you can take Metro Transit. DRIVING TO THE MUSEUM IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE OPTION!!!

Read the questions and answer them on site as they are so specific that it is impossible to answer them when you get home. It will probably be more fun to go with a partner or two, but answer the questions yourself. Your report should be typed and should simply list the answers to each question (be as concise as possible – these questions are all short answer questions). Please save your admission receipt and hand it in (the original) with the report as proof of your attendance at the Museum. The report is due in your laboratory on either W 2/18-F 2/20, T 2/24, or M 3/2. Each question is worth 2 points. 4. The Museum has hard floors; wear comfortable shoes. The Museum has a good
