Unformatted text preview: Section 6: Graded Questions Darwinian Snails NOTES IE QUESTIONS 06.10. Horned lizards use their horns to defend against predatory birds. A researcher observed that lizards living in areas with predatory birds have longer horns than those in areas with no predatory birds. This observation led her to hypothesize that longer horns offer more protection against predation than do shorter horns. To test this hypothesis, the researcher tagged 20 lizards with long horns and 20 lizards with short horns in each of two locations: Desert Valley, where there are no predatory birds, and Cactus Corner, where there are predatory birds. She returned every week for 12 weeks to measure survival of tagged lizards. The graphs below represent her findings. What can you conclude from the researcher's results? Cactus Comer (.

    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.
