Insect Taxonomy Chart and Cladogram
Transcript of Insect Taxonomy Chart and Cladogram
(Black Widow Spider)
African Honey Bee
Describe the physical traits your animals had in common with one another in your taxonomy chart. Break down your descriptions by taxa. (Example: All animals in the class Reptilia breathe air, lay shelled eggs, and have skin covered in scales.)
All the animals were in the phylum Athropods and were invertebrates with an exoskeleton. They all had cuticles and jointed limbs. All of the animals except for the Black Widow Spider were in the class Insecta and all had attenae and compound eyes. African Honey Bees and Yellow Jackets were in the order Hymenoptera and had similar wing structure.
Explain the positions of each species in your cladogram. Why did you place each of your animals in those positions?
I placed the Black Widow Spider furthest away from the other animals because it was a different class then the other ones and was the most distantly related. I placed the African Honey Bee and Yellow Jacket closest to each other because they were the only animals with the same order and were the closest related animals on the chart.
Which was more difficult to make, the Linnaean taxonomy chart or the cladogram? Explain your answer.
The taxonomy chart was harder to make because I had to research the content and I made the cladogram based on the information I already had in my taxonomy chart
