- a it takes many generations to take effect
- b was avid in placing darwins theory in the context of humans
- c authority, belief, logic and science
- d no because complex traits are routinely lost and simplified over time as well as more complex ones created.
- e must be tested, must be falsifiable, cannot be proven only confirmed or disconfirmed, must be subject to revision or change.
5 Multiple choice questions
- must be inherited from common ancestor, so the traits are similar due to common ancestry but they often have different function like wings.
- larger evolutionary change ( often in morphology) warranting placement of populations in diff genera or high level taxa.
- a reduction in the allele frequency because of genetic drift on a small population because of a dramatic reduction of the size of a larger population.
- one base deletion result in the deletion of a base causing all the other bases to shift and make their codons code for different amino acids.
- the process of DNA becomin RNA

Fitness trade-off → is a compromise between traits based on how those traits preform in the enviroment
what culture developed modern science → greek
allele → variant forms of a gene
Law of segregation → first explained by Mendel, it is when an individual produced gametes, the copies of a gene separate so that each gamete receives only one copy.
node → a point when an ancestral species split into two or more descendant species
