In which situation below would the Fst value likely be largest? a) migration rate = 1 individual per 100 generations b) migration rate = 1 individual per 10 generations c) migration rate = 1 individual per generation d) migration rate = 10 individuals per generation e) can’t distinguish among these possibilities because migration rate has a negligible effect on Fst 39. In their paper about managing evolving fish stocks, Jorgensen and colleagues propose that fisheries managers use evolutionary impact assessments (EvolIA) to evaluate the evolutionary consequences of resource exploitation. An EvolIA has two major steps: first, to describe how human actions (such as fishing) lead to trait changes, and second,: a) to describe how trait changes affect community- level evolutionary processes b) to describe how trait changes affect food web linkages c) to describe how trait changes affect the stock's utility to society d) to describe how trait changes affect sport fishing of the same species e) none of the above are correct 40. The biological species concept (as defined by Mayr) defines species as: a. Groups of actually or potentially interbreeding natural populations that form monophyletic groups with other populations b. Groups of actually or potentially interbreeding natural populations that are reproductively isolated from other such groups c. Groups of individuals that, when combined with their most recent common ancestor, form a monophyletic group d. Groups of individuals that are geographically isolated from other similar groups e. Taxa that are distinguished by one or more readily distinguis...
