Question Description

This project is an opportunity to show-what-you-know regarding biology, evolution, biological diversity, and adaptation.

GUIDELINES: POWERPOINT PRESENTATION ONLY! MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE GRADING RUBRIC. LOOK AT THE GRADE A SECTIONS AND USE THOSE AND MAKE THIS AN A PAPER.

Environmental change drives natural selection. New traits are selected to increase the chances of survival of the species. These selected traits can accumulate over time to create a new species. This new species will have new adaptations suited to help it survive in its changed habitat.

For this project you need to…

1. Describe a species of today and the habitat that it lives in.

2. Create an environmental change significant enough to change this habitat and cause the species to adapt.

3. Describe the new habitat after the environmental change.

4. Create a new species that evolved because of the environmental change.

5. Describe in detail how the species adapted to successfully survive in the new habitat.

6. How does genetics fit in regarding successful survival?

7. What is its taxonomy?

SUGGESTIONS

A picture of the species (before and after) would be extremely helpful.

Remember to include HOW and WHY the species evolved.

Which mechanisms of evolution would be involved?

Before Adaptation
 The

archeological study shows that dolphins
evolved from semi-aquatic four-legged animals.

 They

changed the environment occasionally to
adapt and become mostly aquatic.

 They

later adapted to be fully aquatic.

 Bottlenose

species evolved from genus Tursiops
(Foote et al. 2015).

Cont.

Habitat before Adaptation
 The

early species lived on dry land near
water bodies.
 The had four feet for movement over land.
