Biology 180 Study Questions: Speciation, Macroevolution, Phylogenies and Plants Answers 1. 1/2500=q 2 ; q=0.02. The frequency of the recessive cf allele in the U.S. population is 0.02 (or 2%). 2. Directional selection. 3. Stabilizing selection. (FYI: this is in salmon. The red dots refer to hatchery fish, with smaller, more numerous eggs, moving the optimum phenotype by crossing with wild fish). 4. Sexual selection. 5. a) The mutant neutral allele will evolve mostly by drift. Since drift is a random process, we cannot predict the allele’s fate. No gene flow (isolated population), no selection on neutral alleles. b) A beneficial mutation is likely to increase in frequency due to selection and become fixed.
