The content that is uniquely presented on those pages is not in scope.
Those pages cover Linnaean taxonomic orders of Michigan mammals in the branching tree format.
However, there is content on pages 270-279, such as scientific names, which is in scope. Those scientific names can more conviently be found on the pages dedicated to each individual animal.
No. The only restriction is that there may be no loose pages.
Because time is limited at each station, students should be very familiar with the content of their study guide.
Yes, but we do include a hint in the question to make it easier.
No, they will not have to. The skull questions have hints that students should be able to answer it they are familiar with the field guide.
The rules do not specify a size limit. Remember that it cannot have loose pages. There is probably a practical limit on how big it can be or should be.
