Lab 2 Journal Entry

I chose White Campion (Silene latifolia) as the observation to look deeper into. White Campion has two common ancestor species of maidenstears and whorled catchfly. It is at the end of its phylogenic branch on the OneZoom "tree" as well, and this branch stems from a branch of 86 other species.
White Campion has the adaptation of its leaves growing opposite of each other to maximize the photosynthesis from allowing more sunlight to reach the bottom of the plant.
An adaptation common in all of our observations is that of photosynthesis, however, as we recorded 26 species, I believe there are no common specific adaptations through them all.
