“Part 1. Directions: Please watch the movie TITLE: Your Inner Fish AUTHOR: Alex Tate, David Dugan, Tom Cook The movie has accurate captions, if you wish to use them. You must watch the movie to answer the questions. Be warned-we will know if you google the answers. You are not allowed to use google docs to write this with other students. You may watch the movie together, but you may not work together to answer the questions. You need to paraphrase your answers-no credit will be given to students who copy the movie subtitles. If there is any evidence of copying off of another student or any other academic dishonesty, you will receive a zero and the issue will be brought to the university academic dishonesty board.” “Answer the questions using the text boxes provided below each question. Upload the file through turnitin (on Canvas) using a PDF or a Word File only.” 1. “The theory of evolution is supported by many lines of evidence. This video discusses many of these lines of evidence (paleontology, embryology, genetics, etc.) Please summarize 3 different types of evidence found in paleontology, embryology, and genetics that support the idea that humans are descended from fish (meaning, describe the scientific discoveries). No fewer than 3-4 full sentences. 3pts.” 2. “Neil Shubin and his team describe a number of variables that they consider when identifying where to hunt for early land animals. List and describe (as in, why do we need to identify these variables) two of these variables in complete sentences. 2pts.” 3. “Tiktaalik has many features that classify it as a “transitional fossil”. List and describe at least 3 of these features. In your answer, describe why these features are considered transitional. 3pts.” 4. “What does Sonic the Hedgehog (the gene, not the video game) do? Explain what can happen if the gene isn’t activated enough or it is activated too muchgive an example of this. 2pt.” 5. “These fossils were found in the Arctic, in Greenland, where it is very cold and snowy through most of the year. However, their environment when they were alive 470 million years ago was not cold and snowy. Explain. This isn’t discussed in the movie-you have to think about it geologically. 2pt.” 6. “Write a paragraph (4-5 sentences) on what you found interesting about this movie, or what you learned. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the movie. 2pts.” “Part 2. Lecture material questions.” 1. “The Cambrian Explosion and the Great Ordovician Biodiversification event both resulted in major expansions of diversity on Earth. However, the types of diversity were very different. Explain two differences between the two, in terms of the types of diversity evolving during the events. I would warn heavily against googling the answers for this-use your lecture notes. 4pts.” 2. “The following questions relate to the phylogenetic tree below. Note that the branches are square shaped instead of v-shaped. The tree can be read in the exact same way. 2pts.” a. “What organism is the sister group to all symmetrical animals?” b. “Who is sister group to the chordates?” c. “Mollusks have two shells. Lophophorates have two shells, though they are constructed differently and made of different minerals. Is this homology or homoplasy?” d. “Why might bilateral symmetry have evolved (use your class notes)?” 3. “Using the below C13 diagram, answer the following questions.” a. “The amount of C13 in the rock record indicates what about photosynthetic activity? Be specific; mention high and low C13. 2pts.” b. “In the Phanerozoic, there is a large decrease in C13 at about 250 million years ago. What might the world have been like, knowing what you know about C13 (consider both temperature and photosynthetic activity in your answer)? 2pts.” ...

1. “The theory of evolution is supported by many lines of evidence. This video
discusses many of these lines of evidence (paleontology, embryology, genetics, etc.)
Please summarize 3 different types of evidence found in paleontology, embryology,
and genetics that support the idea that humans are descended from fish (meaning,

In the movie Neil is seen in the lab dissecting a human hand and after going to the arctic
he discovers a fish fossil that is on the point of variation.it is evident as observed that the
shape of our hands and fins is traded on the fins of the ancient fish. It is revealed in the
movie how our past reptilian feature left marks on our skin, the shape of our teeth and
ears which reveals our transition from reptiles to mammals. Neil clearly describes the
reasons why men suffer from hernias and attaches it to inheritance of their spermatical
cords from ancient fish ancestors. The fish embryo and human embryo from what is
shown looks almost exactly alike.
2. “Neil Shubin and his team describe a number of variables that ...
