Who's Who? *suitable for home teaching*
This worksheet, from the Linnean Society, looks at speciation, dimorphic and polymorphic species and Batesian mimicry. In Batesian mimicry a palatable species mimics an unpalatable one, thus protecting itself from predation. Through a series of questions based on the text, the resource aims to explore this in detail and looks at the following areas: * the principles of evolution by natural selection * the importance of Bates’, Wallace’s and Darwin’s contributions to science * the influence of genetic and environmental factors on variation * the effect of linkage on variation This resource was produced by the Linnean Society. Founded in 1788, the Linnean Society is the world’s oldest active biological society and promotes the study of all aspects of the biological sciences, with particular emphasis on evolution, taxonomy and biodiversity.
