Re: Herpetology B/C

Sometimes, info can be hard to find for genera since many websites are a lot more detailed about species. When I can't find a lot of info about a genus, I'll usually just look at some of the most common species and combine info from those. It's not perfect, but it works. So, for web-toed salamander...

Re: Fossils B/C

For example, could I just use Wikipedia, even though it talks about the living version? I know that a lot of the genera on the list are extinct, but some *such as Carcharodon* ar...

There's a hundred or so, just look at the numbering. Rocks/trace fossils don't really count as fossils, IMO.


PSHHH. I am so ignorant. Duh, look at the numbering. Thanks!

Re: Fossils B/C

How would you recommend going about problems on the test that you don't know or don't have notes on? What is the best way to handle this and get the best answer you can?

Re: Herpetology B/C

Does anyone have binder compiling tips? What should be included for each species, the amount of info, how to find information quickly when taking the test, things like that.
