Part 7 of 8 - Lab Essay 5.0 Points Question 30 of 31 5.0 Points In a few sentences, what was the overall purpose of the lab for this week? You should include 1- 2 sentences on the methods and then the overall reason. The purpose for the lab this week was to study the evolution of the stickleback. I was also able to learn the importance of the study of fossils. Comment: This lab explored the pelvic structures from fossils from the stickleback fish located in two different lakes in Alaska. The data from the fossils showed how environmental factors affected the evolution of these fish. [Show More]
