EVOLUTION REPLACED CREATIONIST HYPOTHESES EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE Change in allele frequency in a population change in gene frequency: not really Genetic change occurs in individuals and effects their reproductive fitness and the frequency of favored alleles in populations.

BILD 3 30 June, 2010 Woodruff: Agents of microevolution 2 CHAPTER 13 MEIOSIS AND SEXUAL REPRODUCTION Meiosis: process of reduction division to produce haploid N gametes from diploid 2N cells Fertilization: egg and sperm unite to form a zygote restoring the diploid number The maternal and paternal chromosomes are independently assorted during 1st metaphase of meiosis Crossing over (breakage and reciprocal re-fusion) between homologous maternal & paternal chromosomes during 1st prophase produces recombinant chromosomes
