Section 1: Paper specific questions 1. The three main adaptive functions for coloration in mammals are communication within species, camouflage(crypsis), and regulation of specific processes in animals like thermoregulation. 2. Why is Evolution Canyon a good place to look at adaptive coloration? Evolution Canyon is a good place to observe adaptive coloration because the two sides of the canyon have very distinct colors and environments when compared to each other. 3. Pheomelanin is yellow to brown. 4. Eumelanin is gray to black. 5. The mice on the European slope exhibited a much higher mean ratio of eumelanin to pheomelanin, indicating a much darker coat to match the dark soil and foliage of the environment. There was a significant difference between the amounts of eumelanin of each species while the pheomelanin contents were not significantly different. 6. How does this paper relate to the Sordaria genetics lab?

    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.
