Tirarensis [Blue Jay] [Robin] [Cardinal] [Finch] [Pelican] Taxonomy Chart Classification Project By:Karla Cardenas Part A:Taxonomy Chart Part B:Cladogram Summary Questions Part C: Summary Questions 1. 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.)
The physical traits all the birds have in common with each other is that they are all in class Aves, breathe air, lay shelled eggs, have skin covered in feathers, and all of them fly and have beaks. 2. Explain the positions of each species in your cladogram. Why did you place each of your animals in those positions?
3. Which was more difficult to make, the Linnaean taxonomy chart or the cladogram? Explain your answer. The most difficult to make was the Cladogram because you have to somewhat guess which are more alike then others. It was hard because they are all birds so you would think they are all alike but they are not. The letter A is the farthest out from the rest and that would be the Pelican because the Pelican is way more different then the rest of the birds.Then going from B-E they share more things in common like being land birds and living in a certain area. D-E which is the Robin and Blue Jay are more things in common than the rest of the birds.For example both Robins and Blue Jays love to sing songs Sites used: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Jay#Subspecies
