1. You examine a population of wildflowers in which the white flower phenotype is recessive and the red flower color is dominant. Out of a thousand individuals, 360 were found to have white flowers and 640 were found to have red flowers. Assuming just one gene controls this phenotype, and that it is in Hardy- Weinberg equilibrium, which of the following is the best estimate of the frequency for the dominant allele in this population? 0.16 0.36 0.40 0.60 0.64 2. Which of the following statements best describes the microevolutionary mechanism known as the bottleneck effect? Perhaps because of a chance event only a few mating pairs of a population survive to pass on their allele frequencies to the next generation. A new mutation allele that enters a population must occur in enough individuals for it to have a chance to persist in the population. The width of the neck of the bottle you use to move sunfish to a pond will limit the size of the fish you can move. Because of nonrandom mating an individual mates more often and so is an ancestor to more of the next
