1. Ginkgo 2. Living fossil 3. Jurassic to Present (although some sources say Permian) 4. Ginkgoales Jurassic (some say Permian)
I got permian for 4 but otherwise correct!

Ok cool. Thank god. Thats what I thought but wikipedia said other stuff. In short I'm freaked out for MIT. Next question...

Image
1. Kingdom
2. Phylum
3. Class
4. Order
5. Genus
6. What anatomical part is highlighted in this picture?
7. What was the function of said anatomical part?
8. What type of cross section is this (more anatomy but BONUS so hey)
9. What anatomical part is the darkened area?
10. What was the function of said part when the organism was alive?
11. Can you see the anatomical part that gives this order its namesake in this picture?
12. Environment?
13. During which time period was this order an important reef builder?

1. Animalia
2. Cnidaria
3. Anthozoa
4. Favositida? (I have conflicting names for this one)
5.Favosites
6.mural pores
7.Allow nutrient transfers between poylps
8. I think Sagittal (A&P person here soooo....)
9.Corallites
10. Provides place for polyp to retract to and to sit in
11.Yes? As corallites are hexagonal shaped
12. Shallow-water reefs water
13.Silurian

Mostly correct.

4. Tabulata
8. Sagittal is right but I shouldn't have asked that question
11. No (Namesake is tabullae and you can't see them because its a sagittal cut--> i think you could see them if it was a frontal or transverse cut except I think a frontal is better)
12. Shallow marine is correct but important to note that its WARM water
13. Silurian is correct but this was true during the Devonian as well

Haha I know it will be fun. But the level of competition is very much intimidating.

Referring to the fossil in the center of the photo

1. Phylum/Class/Genus
2. Living Environment?
3. Which great extinction did this organism survive.
4. The feeding organ this genus shares with all the members of its phylum is what?

All good except for 3 they did survive the great Permian extinction. And I know 4 is super easy but was struggling of what else to put. Your turn.

hopefully the image shows up... :|
also, I thought Mucrospirifer only lived in the Devonian...?

1. Class and order
2. what advantages did its "paddles" have in swimming?
3. describe its habitat
4. is it a diapsid, synapsid, or euryapsid?

Wait. How did Mucrospirifer survive the Permian extinction if it is not found after the Devonian?
