Hello everyone,
I am looking forward to your observations. Let me know if you have questions and remember you can post your discussions about one specimen of your choice and adaptations in this Journal

Lilan Forsyth's Journal Entries

1 The Eastern Gray Squirrel once belonged to a common ancestor who existed approximately 2.6 million years ago. The common ancestor evolved into six different species, but the one that is closest to the eastern gray squirrel is the Bryant's fox squirrel.

2 Due to the broad theme of our project and different location of plants and animals, I cannot identify an adaptation that all observed species have in common. However, it is noted that most plants observed are deciduous, meaning they are able to survive cold environments and lack of water by shedding their leaves and going dormant.

3 A unique adaptation of Northern Pacific Tree Frogs is their ability to change colour to adapt to their environment. The ability to camouflage is a defence mechanism to avoid being prey to larger animals such as the bullfrog.

Lilan's 5 Identifications

  1. Brown-Eyed Susans:
    I agreed with Isabelle's identification of Brown-Eyed Susans by using the Inaturalist suggestions. I compared brown-eyed Susans to coneflowers and black-eyed Susans. The flowers suited the Brown-Eyed Susan's properties the best due to its brown almost cone-like center.

  2. Sage:
    I recommended the purple woodland sage (Salvia Nemorosa) because of its colour and leaves. The structure of the plant resembled of that of Salvia Nemorosa.

  3. Dogwoods:
    This one was more complicated because the flowers had not bloomed so I agreed with Annie that it was a Dogwood (Genus Cornus) because of the leaves.

  4. Genus Celosia:
    I agreed with the identification of Genus Celosia because of its lobed leaves and flower structure (small dense spikes).

  5. Morning Glories:
    I agreed with the identification of Morning Glories (Genus Ipomea) because of its funnel/bell-shaped structure and lobed leaves.
