4/8/16 1 LS1 Clicker Ques3ons, Week 2 Spring 2016 On a hike through a forest you no3ce a popula3on of 100 flowering plants that all look iden3cal (phenotypic clones). They cover an area of approximately 100 m 2 . You collect a leaves from representa3ve plants from throughout the popula3on and sequence the DNA in the lab. You determine that the plants are also gene3c clones. This popula3on is able to evolve via natural selec3on. A. True B.

You collect a leaves from representa3ve plants from throughout the popula3on and sequence the DNA in the lab. You determine that they are also gene3c clones, and that they are homozygous for a gene LLT (low light tolerance). What is the frequency of the LLT allele in this popula3on of 100 plants? A. 0.0 B. 0.5 C. 1.0 D. Need more informa3on You go for another hike in this forest and encounter the same popula3on of 100 flowering plants. You no3ce that one individual from the popula3on is growing in full sun, and all of the others are growing in at least par3al shade. You collect a leaf sample from the full sun individual, sequence the DNA, and find that this individual is heterozygous. There is a muta3on in the LLT gene (the mutant gene is designated LLT-s). This popula3on is able to evolve via natural selec3on. A. True B. False You go for another hike in this forest and encounter the same popula3on of 100 flowering plants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
