Activity: Calculating Population Frequencies A. Theory Place a in the correct column that defines each type of evolution: Description Microevolution Macroevolution Results in the formation of a new species ( Speciation) Results in a change in frequencies of alleles / genotypes from one generation to the next Results in populations being reproductively isolated from each other No separation of gene pools Occurs due to mutation, migration, non-random mating or natural selection. Results in the separation of gene pools 2. Would it be more correct to say “an organism evolves” or “a species evolves”? Explain. It is more accurate to say a species evolves. Evolution is actually the gradual change in a gene pool over time. It is through natural selection and mating that certain alleles may be passed on in higher proportions resulting in a change in a gene pool that causes evolution. 3. Identify 5 characteristics required of a population in order to remain in equilibrium ( Hardy- Weinberg Equilibrium) by completing the following chart.

    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.
