c. 75 d. 100 e. 150 Score: 1 of 1 9. You examine a population and note that its allele frequencies for a particular gene are p = 0.55 and q = 0.45. If you come back and examine the population after several generations and found that the values for p and q have not changed, which of the following statements is FALSE for this gene?
Score: 1 of 1 10. Darwin's finches came from a mainland species where some individuals were able to move to the islands and then spread from one island to another. What effect did the initial movement to the Galápagos have on the genetic diversity of the colonist population relative to the population on the mainland, and why did it have this effect?
Incorrect. Please refer back to the eBook for more information. c. It decreased the colonists' genetic diversity because this represents an example of the sampling effect of genetic drift. d. It increased the colonists' genetic diversity because this would introduce new mutations into the population. e. It decreased the colonists' genetic diversity because this represents an example of natural selection. Score: 0 of 1
