Procedures:

  1. Visit http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/phyla/phyla.html; Introduction to the Metazoa: Animals, Animals, Animals!, University of California, Berkeley Museum of Paleontology. Click the Systematics link and learn more about a group you desire to begin researching for this lab. Note: The boxes without images have not yet been developed.
  2. If possible, visit a local zoo and try to learn more about the animal group you are researching. Take pictures, talk to the zookeepers, etc.
  3. Visit a number of websites (a few starters are listed below) that deal with the topic of the great diversity, and biological, ecological and economic impact of animals to life on earth and human society. Gather (and cite!) information and images to allow you to prepare a virtual poster session.
  4. In your poster session presentation, you will need to detail the classification of the group of creatures you are detailing. Include the time of first occurrence, fossil record (if any), economic and societal impact of the group, and its evolutionary importance (for example the green algae are not terribly important save as a stem group for the evolution of plants).

Example sites:

http://www.tolweb.org/tree/ Tree of Life Web Project. Maintained by scientists and collaborators, this site organizes over 5000 web pages about the classification and relationships of the domains and other taxonomic groups. 

http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/site/index.html Links for Systematics. This site compiles many links to aid your research.
