  • Page ID
    1. Which of these major evolutionary groups appears to be the most abundant in your area? Why might this be? Consider your local climate, topography, and animal species.
    2. If your climate were to become drier, which group would you expect to see more of? What if it were to become wetter? Explain your reasoning.
    3. Which adaptations do all plants share for living on land?
    4. Which traits do land plants share with green algae?
    5. Place the following groups into the correct nested structure: Viridiplantae, flowering plants, tracheophytes, seed plants, embryophytes.
    6. On the back of this page, draw a phylogeny that uses green algae as the outgroup. The traits you listed that are shared with green algae will be the ancestral traits. Use the information included in this lab to indicate where new traits evolve on your evolutionary timeline.
