D. The changes in amino acid sequence used to calculate molecular phylogenies do
not cause changes in function.
E. More than one of the above.
Beaming in your answers
1. Figure out your answer and select the appropriate letter (A-E).
2. Turn on your iCliker by pressing the “ON/OFF” button; the blue “POWER” light should
come on. If the red “LOW BATTERY” light comes on, you should replace your batteries
3. Transmit your answer as follows:
a. Press the button corresponding to the answer you’ve selected (A thru E).
b. The “STATUS” light will flash green to indicate that your answer has been received.
If the “STATUS” light flashed red, your answer was not received; you should resend it until you get a green “STATUS” light. Evolution 9 - 1 PFPPP E: PPLPF F: Evolution 9 - 2 D: PPLFP E: PPLFP IFPPP • Species D vs. Species E Species C • Reconstructing the history from the modern species (D, E, F):

P = proline
F = phenylalanine
L = leucine
