Please be certain to compare and contrast your organism’s life history to that of humans! Use what you have learned about Austad’s work on opossums to draw inferences about your species. Does your species “live fast and die young”? Why or why not? How have selecting pressures in its environment shaped your species’ life history?
As before, be sure you have the 800 word minimum and discuss the life history of your organism in depth. And remember to compare it to human life history at the end of your essay.
Peer reviews for this assignment will open up later that evening after the close of the assignment. Please complete peer reviews within 7 days.
