1) How can organisms that reproduce asexually have genetic diversity? 2) What information about evolution can be determined by looking at individuals? 3) If fossils found in two different parts of the world looked similar, could we infer that they were the same species? 4) Has the copy fidelity of genes or memes changed significantly? 5) You have a herd of cloned cows, and you now want to use artificial selection to make them grow even larger. How would you do this? 6) What type of selection can lead to two new species arising? 7) What are the three evolutionary events that can lead to a decrease in genetic diversity? What information would allow you to differentiate between these events? 8) In fact the first human to have the single mutation that led to the sickle-cell allele, would the sickle-cell allele have been immediately subject to natural selection? 9) Some researchers have suggested that we are in a time when extinctions significantly outnumber the evolution of new species. What does this tell us about the environment?
