Unformatted text preview: Problem Set 3 Evolution A 1 A 2 A 3 A 4 A 5 A 6 Rumplestiltskin 1. For which alleles could Rumplestiltskin be identical by descent? What is Rumplestiltskin's inbreeding coefficient? 2. A population of 10 ideal individuals breeds for 10 generations. Assuming F = 0, what is the inbreeding coefficient of this population in the 10th generation? Repeat for a population of 500 individuals. 3. You have a breeding population of elephants. If you were to survey them from the air, you would count 300 individuals, 150 males and 150 females. However, wildlife biologists on the ground have discovered that only 3 bulls do all the mating. They each mate with 50 different females. Calculate the inbreeding coefficient after 10 generations for this population, using the following numbers as the population size in the equation relating F to N: A. 300 individuals (the data available from the air survey) B. 153 individuals (the number of breeding individuals) C. The effective population size (Use your notes to determine the correct...
