Insect Evolution

Posted on September 01, 2016

Kyle DeMarr '16 highlights particularly fascinating aspects of insect body plans in order to showcase how insects adapt to take advantage of their environment and how identical environments or selection pressures can produce strikingly similar body plans in a process called convergent evolution. Produced by Cornell University's Naturalist Outreach Program and Ithaca College's Park Productions, with support from NYS 4H, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and NSF-DUE.
