  4. genetic equilibrum
  5. speciation
  1. a situation in which allele frequencies in a population remain the same
  2. b the formation of a new species
  3. c structures that are shared by related species and that have been inherited from a common ancestor
  4. d when allele frequencies change as a result of the migration of a small subgroup of a population
  5. e separation of a species or population so that they no longer interbreed and evolve into two separate species

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. uses mutation rates in DNA to estimate the time that two species have been evolving independently
  2. states that allele frequencies in a population should remain constant unless one or more factors cause those frequencies to change
  3. body parts that share common function, but not structure
  4. random change in allele frequency caused by a series of chance occurrences that cause an allele to become more or less common in a population
  5. how well an organism can survive and reproduce in its environment
