Welcome to Tree of Life: Mechanisms
This is a place to contribute resources, tools, and assessments that address the following learning outcomes under the broad theme of mechanisms of evolution.
Students are able to:
LO1.1 Demonstrate how morphological evolution results from a subset of molecular evolution
LO1.2 Compare and contrast the likelihood of phenotypic and genotypic convergence
LO1.3 Demonstrate how evolutionary changes are constrained by existing genotypic and phenotypic variation.
LO1.4 Recognize that evolution occurs in an environment that varies over space and time.
LO1.5 Evaluate the relative importance of abiotic versus biotic factors on selection
LO1.6 Recognize and compare multiple evolutionary solutions to similar environmental challenges
