Phylogenetic Tree

Postby Emily » Mon Nov 28, 2005 5:20 pm

Can someone help me with this biology question?

3. Some living forms are also found in the fossil record.

4. There are gaps in the fossil record for some lineages. Also, some species went extinct without leaving any descendants (remember the dinosaurs).

5. The Caminalcules were numbered at random; the numbers provide no clues to evolutionary relationships.

6. There is only one correct phylogenetic tree in this exercise. This is because of the way Joseph Camin derived his imaginary animals. He started with the most primitive form (#73) and gradually modified it using a process that mimics evolution in real organisms.

After you complete your phylogenetic tree, look at the Caminalcule tree below. The diagram has the correct lines, and many of the species are put in the correct places. When you are sure that you know which species fill in the forty blanks, enter your answers.
A. N.
B. O.
C. P.
D. Q.
E. R.
F. S.
G. T.
H. U.
I. V.
J. W.
K. X.
L. Y.
M. Z. N/A
AA. N/A HH. N/A
BB. N/A II. N/A
CC. N/A JJ. N/A
DD. N/A KK. N/A
EE. N/A LL. N/A
FF. N/A MM. N/A
GG. N/A NN. N/A

Sorry, I cannot get the tree to post? Any thoughts?
