Cool Bio Fieldtrip

The AP Biology class traveled to Jennings Environmental Center to study aquatic invertebrate species.  We compared organisms which lived in ephemeral (seasonal) ponds to those organisms that lived in permanent ponds.  We discovered that the different types of aquatic habitats have different species of invertebrates.  The invertebrates have evolutionary adaptations to live in either kind of pond ecosystem, but typically not both.
