with adaptations well-suited for the hotter environment. So long as the population has different genetic variants in it, some better able to survive and reproduce in particular situations than others, the population has the capacity to evolve when faced with a changing environment (UCMP.BERKELEY, 2008). In a few cases, there are species that have actually evolved, and have experienced a change in gene frequency in their population in response to global warming. Interestingly, in those cases, the species are not necessarily becoming more heat tolerant, but are adapting to changes in the environment (UCMP.BERKELEY, 2008) Evotutor Problem, Question #2 What do you learn as you vary parameters in each simulation? Natural selection is the process in which a species gains adaptations over time. The EvoTutor natural selection simulator allows us to look at the process and parameters including in the influence of variation, differential mortality, and whether or not heritability plays a key role or not in the process of natural selection. Given the opportunity to visualize these parameters on

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
