Lab 2 Journal Entry

I chose to look at the phylogeny for the Eastern Hemlock or Tsuga canadensis. It is a species of Hemlock, is part of the family Pinaceae, is an Acrogymnosperm, and more generally a vascular seed plant. One adaptation that the European Raspberry( Rubus Idaeus) has is thorns on its stems. This adaptation helps to prevent herbivores from eating the plant. If the plant is not eaten, the plant can produce berries with seeds and can reproduce/spread faster. Since all of my observed plants are vascular plants, an adaptation they have in common is xylem and phloem cells. These help conduct water and solutes through the plant.
