4. Understand how natural selection can cause new alleles (e.g., mutations) to  become removed/common/fixed in populations A. List  the four postulates of natural selection D.  Use  the concepts of heritable variation, constraints and trade-offs to explain why  natural selection does not work to “improve” traits or move toward a “perfect design” F.  Discuss  the causes and consequences of heritable variation and differential survival  and reproduction. G.   When prompted with one of the requirements for natural selection,  describe  (in your  own words) why natural selection could not operate without it H.  Compare  and  relate  the roles of reproduction and survival in natural selection I.  Predict  phenotype distributions of a quantitative trait in future generations given  information on the current population distribution and the relative fitness associated  with trait values J.  Infer  the relative fitness associate with trait values based on paired (before-and-after)  phenotypic distributions L.  Defend  the statement that selection is reactive, and not a directed process with  foresight
