A step in speciation

Today we did an activity where students plotted actual data from R.C. Stebbins work at the University of California (Berkeley). The species studied was Esantina eschscholtzii.

Homework: finish the plotting and analysis questions. This is due at your next class. The color pictures of the salamanders have been emailed to you and are posted below. You will need a topographical map to answer some of the questions and this is also posted below. You can click on the pictures to make them larger.

Notes on completing the analysis questions:

Use the map below to answer questions 2 and 5, in part A and question 3 in part B.
Use the pictures of the salamanders (below) to answer question 4 in Part A and question 2 in Part B.
