From the developers, "Mesquite is modular, extendible software for evolutionary biology, designed to help biologists organize and analyze comparative data about organisms." Students can use Mesquite to build trees, plot characters onto trees, and explore ancestral state reconstructions.
This is a place to contribute resources, tools, and assessments that address the following learning outcomes under the broad theme of speciation.
Students are able to:
1. Illustrate how divergence in phenotype may lead to reproductive isolation
2. Recognize that species are dynamic entities, and compare the theoretical and practical uses of multiple species concepts
3. Interpret visual representations of speciation events
