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.
