Molecular Biology and Primate Phylogenics
By counting differences in amino acids, biology stars examine the relationships between different primates. With information gleaned, they map out a phylogenic tree and discover common ancestry. You will need to create printable versions of the amino acid charts and blank phylogenic trees for your classes, but this is a well-planned resource that you can use in your AP Biology classes to help your learners explore evolutionary relationships.

Dugongs and Elephants-Cousins?
Students read about and discuss the dugong's special adaptations to ocean life and they draw evolutionary trees showing dugongs and elephants. They finish by adding text to their trees describing dugong adaptations.
