I am new to the list, so please excuse my ignorance if the questions I ask
have been answered before.
The introductory Biology class (first semester course) I will teach for the
first time this semester provides an overview of phylogeny for about a third
of the course. I was introduced to Mesquite at a program on Cladistics
offered by the American Museum of Natural History for High School Teachers
and want to incorporate the use of Mesquite in the laboratory. Has anyone
developed laboratory exercises for an Introductory Biology course using
Mesquite that you (they) would be willing to share?
Another related question, since my small campus has few specimens, I wanted
to use Excel spreadsheets containing morphological (in the case microbes,
cytological) characteristics for groups so that the students could use for
analysis in Mesquite.
In advance, thanks for your assistance.
