2 Biology 171 Exam 3 Winter 2009 SHORT ANSWER KEY Answers in Bold Blue Font. NOTE: This year, you were already tested on details of sexual selection on exam 2. SA 1 . In seahorses (a type of marine fish), females are brightly colored while males have colors that match the seagrass habitats where the species lives. Females deposit their eggs inside the male’s brood pouch and males fertilize the eggs. Once fertilization is completed, the females leave to court new mates and the male parent provides all the parental care – this includes taking care of the developing embryos in his brood pouch until the juvenile seahorses are ready to leave the brood pouch and for a short time after birth. (10 pts total, parts A through E) A) What is sexual dimorphism and is it present in this species? Explain . (2 pt.) Sexual dimorphism means that the sexes differ in morphological and/or behavioral traits that are used in attracting and/or obtaining mates. Yes, sexual dimorphism is present in this seahorse species as females have bright coloration whereas males have drab coloration. B)
