Unformatted text preview: e control r uns when the AA allele frequency is set to 1.0. Biology 1209 Spring 2010 Writing Assignment 1 Name: Sarah Henthorn Lab Instructor: Lisa Boughner Lab Section: 15 General Research Question : How does the fitness level of the AA genotype affect the endangerment of African elephants? The reasons for the endangerment and decline of this species can be found in Browns Blood Ivory: The Massacre of the African Elephant . Null hypothesis : There will be no change in the population of African elephants. Alternative hypothesis : If the fitness level is decreased, the phenotype expressed by AA is less likely to survive compared to others. Results: Table 1 Figure 1 Biology 1209 Spring 2010 Writing Assignment 1 The side table and graph above represent ten test runs on the PopG program with the fitness level of the AA allele frequency changed to 0.8. As shown in Figure 1 above, the AA allele frequency ranges from 0.05-0.09 in no specific pattern. Figure 1 is showing that when the AA allele frequency is decreased to specific pattern....
