1008evolution Sensory bias/exploitation: female preference exists before the male trait even exists -can explain preference for exaggerated trait -can be starting point for evolution for female preference -direct selection -indirect selection Phylogenetic Methods: -mapping a trait on a tree -under parsimony -parsimony optimality criterion -minimizes change -parsimony can be used to select tree topology hypotheses -rooted vs unrooted trees -unrooted tree: know nothing about time or order of evolutionary events -root a tree: define where the oldest point is on that tree

Unformatted text preview: -giving a direction to tree-use an OUTGROUP to say where oldest point of tree is comparative method:-using phylogenies to compare evolution of trait across different species-usually used when evolution of trait not variable within species Q: do power lines cause cancer?-group of humans that live near power lines, grou that doesn’t-envi is otherwise identical-powerline 35/50-no powerline 2/50-but 33 of ppl in power line group are RELATED-so now there might be genetic factor involved...

    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.
