Unformatted text preview: Sheet1 Page 1 Evolution: Science:-observe + measure-info build explanation-naturalistic explanation-tells How (processes) Religion:-faith-info support explanation-supernatural explanation-tells by whom and for what explanation Mechanism whereby evolution exists 3 nitrogenous bases - > codon - > amino acid - > proteins - > morphology (shape) and physiology (how respond to enve) Types of evolution:-microevolution: change in allele frequency via mutation, genetic drift, gene flow, and natural selection-macroevolution: large scale patterns, rates and trend changes among higher taxa (level of organization)-speciation Microevolution: Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium: Definition: as long as no other factors are present, genetic ratios will remain the same forever.-seems to conflict w/ evolution 4 factors that cause change: mutation, genetic drift, gene flow, natural selection Mutation: spontaneous change in a gene that creates a variation (different allele)-at such a slow rate in both directions that even if unidirectional it would be ineffective @ altering gene frequency...
