Organism that lives within 50 miles of your home

Identify an organism that lives within 50 miles of your home. Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper about how the organism has adapted to survive in their specific environment. Include the following points in your paper: o Briefly describe the environment (temperature, landscape, food sources, etc.) and describe the organism’s role in the environment. Determine which organism your chosen organism would be most closely related to using a phylogenetic tree. o Identify the structures and functions of the main organs found in your selected organism. o Explain how the organism has evolved physiologically to become suited to its environment. o Explain how things would change if the organism were to be transplanted to a significantly different environment: o Would their organ system still be as efficient? Why or why not? o Would the organism survive in this new environment? Why or why not?
