The great diversity of insect species on earth can be attributed, in large part, to the process of insects co-evolving with plant species. Co-evolution is a change in the genetic composition of one species (or group) in response to a genetic change in another. In this lesson, students will learn about co-evolution of mutualistic relationships while studying the roles of pollinators and plants. Grade Level: 9-12
