Unformatted text preview: evolutionary change II. Behavioral variation caused by single genes A. Behavioral alternatives are discrete variants B. Evolution of particular gene loci or of phenotypic traits determined by single genes can be followed by tracking changes in the frequencies of alleles and genotypes at that locus. This is possible because one can recognize the phenotype associated with each allele. BioNB 2210: Lecture 04 Aug. 31, 2011 III. Phenotype determined by many genes A. Continuous phenotypic variation B. Evolution as a change in mean phenotype (we often don t know the gene basis of variation) C. Genetic and environmental effects on behavioral variation...
