Lab 2 Journal - Caroline Guo

1) The following was the phylogenic placement I found for the Freeman's Maple using OneZoom:

Eukaryotes > Plants, alveolates, brown algae, and more > Plants > Green plants > Pentapetalae > Rosids > Sapindales > Freeman's Maple

This looks a bit longer than my other group members' phylogenic trees suggesting that my species might have more types of close relatives.

2) An adaptation that all our plants share is that they are all green, from having chlorophyll which allows the plants to absorb energy from the sun, especially blue light.

3) A unique adaptation of the Thicket Creeper I observed are that there are 5 leaflets on each leaf that are equally spaced apart in a "star" pattern.
