Bio 1223 Learning Outcomes 2009/10 MMMGN 1. Define mutation, migration, mate selection, genetic drift, natural selection. 2. How does each of mutation, migration, mate selection, genetic drift, natural selection disrupt the H-W Equilibrium? 3. How do genetic variability and adaptability contribute to the genetic future in a population. 4. What happens to genetic variability in a population because of mutation, migration, mate selection, genetic drift and natural selection? 5. What happens to adaptability in a population because of mutation, migration, mate selection, genetic drift and natural selection? 6. What role does the Bottleneck effect play a role in the genetic future of a population. 7. What role does the Founder effect play a role in the genetic future of a population. 8. Why do most phenotypic traits show normal distributions in a population. 9. Provide examples of three types of natural selection (directional, stabilizing, disruptive) and the

Unformatted text preview: effect of each on a normal phenotype curve. 10. List the genetic levels at which natural selection may act. 11. What is the importance of genetic variability to populations in stable and in changing habitats. 12. List the factors that reduce genetic variability in a population. 13. List the factors that generate and maintain genetic variability in a population. 14. Provide an example of a ring species and its importance in gene flow and genetic isolation. 15. Provide an example of a cline and how it may enhance genetic variability in a population. 16. Relate clines to altitudinal and latitudinal gradients. 17. How do heterozygote superiority and frequency dependent selection contribute to balanced polymorphisms. 18. Explain how environmental heterogeneity (temporal and spatial differences in habitats) may contribute to polymorphic fitness in populations....
