5. Evidence for evolution from BiogeographyAustralia brokeapart from Gondwanaland AFTER marsupial mammals had evolved butBEFORE placental mammals had evolved.

Notice the convergence of marsupials in Australia with placental mammals in other continents.This is a classic example of convergent evolution

8. Observations of populations over timeSimUText example:There is variation in armor plating among threespinesticklebacks in Lake Washington. Is therean adaptivevalueof this armor?

For this outcome to occur, the presence of plates must be: 1.Variable 2.Heritable 3.Improve survival when there is selection pressure (survival selective) SimUText exercise will illustrate this point!
