A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Biogeography.
To think critically about a concept by generating questions, developing a prediction, providing evidence from the text, and drawing conclusions from the evidence gathered in a Concept Wedge.
Covers methods of evolution other than natural selection, effects of invasive species and ecosystems. Looks at changes in the cane toad population since their invasion of Australia.

This study guide looks at Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection. It also looks at some of the evidences supporting the theory of evolution (comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, biogeography).
