- reconstruct phylogeny of toucans based on color characteristics
determined by students ( R. Irwin, University of Tennessee, Martin).
Includes pictures of toucans and a simple tree-drawing applet that can
be run on-line.
Fastener Phylogeny / Echinoderm Phylogeny
- students use pseudo ("fasteners") and/or real organisms
(echinoderms) to reconstruct phylogeny based on observed characteristics
(Antonovics and Taylor, University of Virginia).
