ANTHP 105Mechanisms of EvolutionResults:Figure 1 represents the control of the simulation and shows the effects of natural selectionin a population with a population size of 5000. The allele frequencies in this figure tend to stay the same over time with very few fluctuations. Figure 2 represents the dominant phenotype advantage with the same population and population size. In this figure, the dominant advantageous allele increases in frequency gradually over generations. Figure 3 represents the recessive phenotype advantage with the same population and population size. In figure 3, the recessive advantageous allele increases in frequency almost exponentially and reaches fixation very quickly. The curve in figure 3 is much steeper and goes to fixation a lot quicker than in the dominant advantageous simulation (figure 2) and both figure 2 and 3 reach fixation quicker than that of the control (figure 1).
