 Teach

 Evolution
over
billions
of
years
has
led
to
the
formation
of
millions
of
species,
 each
one
different
from
the
next.
The
world
is
an
almost
unbelievable
menagerie
of
 the
strange
and
incredible.
With
the
aim
of
exploring
this
amazing
diversity,
choose
 2
species
that
you
think
exemplify
adaptation
at
its
most
extreme.
For
each
species,
 write
a
brief
paragraph
about
its
habitat,
distribution,
physical
characteristics,
and
 its
systematic
classification
(i.e.
family,
order,
genus,
etc.).
Note
if
any
of
this
 information
is
unknown
or
you
were
unable
to
locate
it.
Then
in
another
paragraph,
 describe
that
aspect
of
its
natural
history
(e.g.
behavior,
physical
trait)
that
you
find
 most
interesting,
something
that
is
not
common
knowledge.
Discuss
potential
 hypotheses
for
the
adaptive
benefit
of
the
trait.
Can
you
think
of
an
experimental
 method
that
might
be
able
to
test
your
hypotheses?
 
 1. One
species
must
be
in
one
of
the
following
phyla:
Vertebrata,
 Arthropoda,
or
Mollusca.
The
other
species
cannot
be
in
any
of
these
 phyla.
 2. You
must
list
at
least
two
references
for
each
species.
These
 references
must
be
from
the
peer‐reviewed
literature.
You
can
find
a
 brief
guide
explaining
the
benefit
of
using
peer‐reviewed
articles
and
 where
to
locate
them
at:
 http://lib.calpoly.edu/research/guides/articles.html
 3. Each
reference
must
be
properly
cited.
Go
to
 http://library.osu.edu/sites/guides/csegd.php
for
instructions
 regarding
how
to
properly
format
science
citations.
