Adaptations in ecosystems
Students provide answers on a worksheet with regard to whether a scenario is an adaptation or an acclimation.
Draw from evidence to construct an explanation with regard to how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
Students are informed that this is an open-book kind of class activity.
- Campbell or Solomon Biology Textbook and/or EDBS220 slides on Evolution
- Pencils and rubbers
- Evolutionary biology
- Evolutionary adaptation vs acclimation
- Natural selection
Students will be able to decide between an adaptation and an acclimation.
Each question is worth 0.5 marks. Thus, the class activity is worth a total of 10 marks.
