its not that they are hard to identify, theyre rather easy :) but i dont know whether or not i should even devote a page to them
Well that depends. If you think your binder is bulky, keep in mind that a lot of people have huge 200 page+ binders. Now obviously some are organized and some aren't - but that depends on whether u take the time to organize it. Don't worry too much about adding a page, your binder should have anything you even think you'll need to know...

My personal approach is to have a large binder with as much information possible, but to also have it be extremely organized. I try not to exclude any important information just because I think I have it memorized. If you black out on something while taking a test, it could make the difference between getting 1st place and not getting a medal.

They hardly ever make any changes...they might change a few things - im betting 3 or 4 at most. If they add anything, id like to see flatworms - from an anatomical standpoint, their anatomy as bilateral organisms is the simplest in the animal kingdom (again, compared to other bilaterals). Theres a lot to learn about the advantages of a bilateral body form from them. Plus the simplest of them get rid of waste and intake sustenance from the same "hole" :roll:

Unfortunately, not too many fossils of them. That's why you don't see too many worms on the list, because they don't often fossilize (yes, jellyfish are on the list, but they're related to things that DO fossilize quite often).
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats

Ya, i know, i actually looked it up the first time i saw the list, but they're still interesting...however i do understand that u cant put an animal on the list just because it's interesting :(

Has anyone actually seen any questions related to Homo neanderthalensis on a test?
