5 True/False Questions
Sympatric speciation → it increases the amount of variation in a trait individuals with the average trait have a low fitness and the extremes have a higher fitness this is how speciation occurs the two extremes can go in different directions resulting in speciation. An example is the black bellied seed crackers who either had very short or very long beak if they lived long enough to survive so by maiting with the group similar to you you increased the ofsprings survival to the point where eventually there would be two species of long beaked and short beaked
purines → your contribution to the gene pool for future generations the higher your ability to reproduce and survive the higher your fitness.
example of directional selection → large cliff swallows survived because they had more fat stores in a cold snap so the large allele became dominant for survival. might not be fixed though
explain Divergence in traits → once isolated all subpopulations are susceptible to evolutionary change. Subpopulations and if the populations are small then they are more susceptible to genetic drift.
Natural Theology → similarity in adult morphology
