41. If the gene pool were at 99% mutation-A , then: A. A mutation causing females to construct higher nests would lead to more offspring B. A mutation causing females to construct lower nests would lead to more offspring C. A mutation causing females to construct higher nests would lead to more grand- offspring D. A mutation causing females to construct lower nests would lead to more grand- offspring E. Answers A & C are both correct 42. Over a period of a few generations : 43. The mutation that would eventually predominate in the gene pool is: EEMB 2 Final Ivory Version: 0 Page: 13

44. Assuming that the alligators reproduced exclusively by brother-sister mating , the mutation (of the choices listed) that would eventually predominate in the gene pool is: 45. The best gene transport machine (of the choices listed) would be the alligator phenotype that produced: A. 2 offspring and 16 grand-offspring B. 16 offspring and 2 grand-offspring C. 16 offspring and 16 grand-offspring D. A & C are both correct E. None of these answers is correct Use the following information for the next 5 questions (until you see a solid line): An extensive black lava flow is located in an undeveloped region of Nevada. Lizards on both sides of the lava flow are brown. Lizards living on the sparsely vegetated lava flow are black. In the middle of the lava flow is a large lake surrounded by a narrow band of lush green vegetation. Lizards living in this narrow band of vegetation around the lake are green. All three lizard color morphs are well camouflaged from predation by local predators when the soil or the vegetation matches their color, and lizards rapidly return to soil or vegetation matching their color when moved to nearby areas with non-matching color. A molecular study found that the the color morphs are part of a single clade with a polytomy between the green and black taxa. When raised in zoo cages, black and brown and black and green color morphs interbreed and produce fertile offspring (of intermediate color between that of the parents). In a zoo setting, green and brown morphs do not interbreed and artificial insemination leads to sterile offspring. Despite extensive field studies on all three lizard populations, no hybrids have been observed.

    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.
