Unformatted text preview: 1 You are an evolutionary biologist studying three different populations of a certain species of plant. This species shows three distinct flower colors red, pink, and white with the red allele (W) having incomplete dominance over the white (w). You are able to identify heterozygotes (Ww) in the populations, because they are pink. You go out and count the plants of each flower color phenotype in each population and generate these data: Number of plants with each phenotype red pink white Population 1 360 480 160 Population 2 2500 7000 500 Population 3 64 32 4 Q1. Do these populations differ in their frequencies of red and white alleles? A . No, they are all the same B . Yes, they all have different allele frequencies C. Yes, one differs from the other two You are an evolutionary biologist studying three different populations of a certain species of plant.
