Organisms are constantly interacting in complex ecosystems, which leads to them impacting one another all the time! We’re able to track tightly-knit relationships between organisms, by looking at how those organisms change in response to one another. In this synchronous activity, students will be introduced to the subject of coevolution, and will observe and discuss examples of coevolution present today. In the asynchronous activity, students will design their own pollinator that has coevolved to pollinate a flower.
This lesson was originally written for Ecology. With modification, this could apply to Biology 2.
