An overview of the major events in invertebrate evolution.
Distinguishing features of invertebrate groups based on evolutionary divide
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Invertebrate Evolution.
Students learn about invertebrate predators in an open ocean system and their adaptations to their environment.
Uses the symbiotic relationship between a fish and a sea cucumber to address life history, ecology and evolution of these organisms.
Covers carnivorous sponges as a model for adaptation. Compares similar adaptations between carnivorous plants and carnivorous sponges. Looks at how sponge adaptability informs us about early life forms.
Looks at velvet worms as an example of an old body form that still persists in some ecosystems. Seeks to get students to consider the basis of science and question their existing perceptions on the organization of life.
Looks at giant isopods as a vehicle to investigate conditions in the deep-sea, how these animals adapt to these conditions, and how these adaptation are similar to adaptations seen on islands.
Lights in the darkness don't just reveal things...they also hide them.
This study guide covers characteristics of invertebrates (digestive system, movement, reproduction), invertebrate evolution, protostomes vs deuterostomes, and the major invertebrate phyla.
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Invertebrate Evolution.
