Ann Massoud Preston Biology 22 February 15, 2008 Weekly Study Question #3 You are an evolutionary biologist studying three different populations of a certain species of poisonous frogs, they come in three different phenotypes: light green with spots, dark green with no spots, and medium green with very few spots. The dark green with no spots (G) has incomplete dominance over the light green with spots (g). You know that the heterozygotes are the medium green with few spots (Gg). You go and observe the frogs in their natural habitat for a while, count them, and then end up with this data:

Unformatted text preview: Number of frogs with each Phenotype: Dark Green with no Spots Medium Green with few spots Light green with spots Population 1: 3,250 5,220 1,530 Population 2: 495 360 145 Population 3: 52 32 16 What are the frequencies of the Dark green with no spots and Light green alleles with spots of each population? Population 1: (GG): (3,250 + 2,610)/10,000 x 100 = 58.6% (gg): (1,530 + 2,610)/10,000 x 100 = 41.4% Population 2: (GG): (495 + 180)/1,000 x 100 = 67.5% (gg): (145 + 180)/1000 x 100 = 32.5% Population 3: (GG): (52 + 16)/100 x 100 = 68% (gg): (16 +16)/100 x 100 = 32%...

    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.
