RememberWhen you construct your cladogram of the Caminalcules, it may take some time to organize theorganisms into the most logical arrangement. It will look more complex than the examples earlier on inthis packet, and you may observe an example of homoplasy.Draw your cladogram. Include tickmarks at each point a character is used to divide the lineages (in asimilar way to the lancelet-leoprd cladogram earlier).At each split/ node of the cladogram there can only be 2 options.draft of your caminalcule cladogramNow obtain a sheet of paper from your TA to redraw you cladogram more neatly.-put your name on it
Biol 106 Fall 2016Lab 6 Oct 3rd- 7th12Exercise 3:A trip to the GreenhouseObtain a dichotomous key from your (this is not your to keep please do not write on it)Take the elevator to the 7thfloor of Abelson and enter the greenhouse. Find the plants with the whitenumbered stakes and use the dichotomous key provided to identify plants 1-6. You can do these in any order.Plant #List the character states chosen to arrive at this name(the traitsyou chose from the key as best describing the plant in each couplet):At least 2 for each plantIdentification:123456When you have identified all 6 plants,head back down to the labreturn the key, and examine the plantspecimens located around the side benches labeled stations A-F.Exercise 4: Gathering data to make your own plant cladogram.You are now ready to gather data by making observations of plants A-F. You may visit stations A-F in anyorder. Write in the name of each plant as you visit.Survey all of the plants, noticing morphological characteristics that might be useful characters.Decide on 6-7 characters that you think will be useful in categorizing these plants.Write them in the chart below.Then, for each plant, identify the character state for each of your 6-7 characters by observing it carefully.Remember, ideally each trait should either be present or absent, rather than descriptive. Think about stems,vein patterns, leaf shape. If there are more than two choices you will have to subdivide the categorylogically.

They are an ancient, land plant thatdoes not have vascular tissue, while all the other plants do (you can’t always see this which is why thisinformation is provided.DO THIS:On the other side of your caminalcule cladogram paper, draw the base of your tree to get started andmake a branch leading to the Liverwort(the outgroup).Add a tickmark to the trunk below the Liverwort branch and write vascular tissue at the tickmark.Then develop your tree using your character matrix to construct your branching pattern.When you are satisfied with your tree, you are ready for the Exit Questions.
