You are a prominent scientist. You will be attending a symposium to discuss your latest findings regarding the adaptations of a creature that undergone certain changes over the last 20 million years. You will be discussing the creature as it existed in 2014 and the global and environmental changes that influenced the adaptations to its current form. Your findings will be published in a and presented orally to the symposium. Your presentation will include at least three illustrations of your creature’s stages in evolution.
You will produce an interactive pop out timeline for your fellow scientists to view and learn about your research. This timeline will showcase the relationship between geological changes of the earth and the changes your creature went through to evolve.
RADCAB- Website Evaluation
“RADCAB”™ is a great checklist to think about when using websites. Created by Karen M. Christensson, each link leads to her website going into further detail.
Search Terms to Consider
Here are terms to consider as you research on your own:
ecology, natural selection, adaptation, speciation, genetics, convergent evolution, biodiversity, biogeography, reptiles, mammals, birds, fish, genetic variation, adaptation physiology, adaptation biology, climate change, pollution.
Naturally, you should also search the names of your particular creature once you have decided. Combine the name of your creature with terms like "evolution" or "adaptation." For example, I might search "crocodile" along with "adaptation" to see what kinds of results emerge.
