Q3 Benchmark: Comparative Anatomy (Biochem 2)
For this benchmark, my group and I studied the comparative anatomies of a worm, frog, human, and whale. To be more specific, we studied their circulatory systems and how they've evolved over time, as well as how that evolving has affected things such as selective pressures. Though they were all very different, they had many similarities in specific categories. For example, they all obtained some of the same genes, parts of their circulatory systems, etc. We found that their circulatory system adapted as time progressed and environments changed. For example, frogs must have three-chamber hearts to breathe underwater. This would be beneficial for them while hiding from predators. A lot of things can be learned about environments, nature, as well as how animals modify themselves to survive.
