Students explore the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean and address core concepts in evolutionary biology, including adaptation, convergent evolution, phylogenetic analysis, reproductive isolation, and speciation

HHMI BioInteractive Anole Resources:

Lizard Evolution Collection

Educator Publications of Modified Resources:

Many instructors modify and expand HHMI BioInteractive resources based on their course context and students, and QUBES offers a space to share these materials and teaching approaches. Some of these modifications were produced by participants in the 2016 HHMI/QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network.

I recombined the HHMI resources to have the students perform the image analysis from Virtual Lab 1 in Image J and explore the evolutionary principles in the Lizard Phenology modules
