54) The relative fitness of genotype-R is: 55) Suppose that the same experiment was carried out on a different island. On this island, data was only collected for survival: the survival of genotype-B was 25% and that of genotype-R was 50%. The genotype on this island that was the best "gene transport machine is: Use the information below for the following four questions (until you see a bar beneath the question) A population of asexual dandelions has four genetic variants (genotypes): yellow and large flowers (Y/L), yellow and small flowers(Y/S), white and large flowers (W/L) and white and small flower (W/S). The frequencies of the four types in the Spring of 2005 (just before the seeds begin to germinate) were: 500 Y/L, 200 Y/S, 200 W/L, and 100 W/S. The frequencies in 2006 measured at the same time as 2005 were: 750 Y/L, 100 Y/S, and 50 W/L, and 100 W/S. 56) The estimated Darwinian fitness of the genotype with yellow and small flowers is: a) 0.25 d) 1.5 b) 0.5 e) None of these answer is correct c) 1.0 57) The average fitness of the population is: ( hint: this can be calculated without calculating the fitness of all of the genotypes ): 58) The change in the gene pool frequency of the Y/S genotype after one generation of natural selection was:

59) The fitness of the W/S genotype indicates that: ________________________________________________________________________________________ 60) Which statement summarizes the process of evolution by natural selection: a) Those phenotypes that code for genotypes that transport more gene copies from generation to generation will eventually predominate within a population. b) Those genotypes that code for phenotypes that transport more genome copies from generation to generation will eventually predominate within a population. c) Genes accumulate in the gene pool because they code for phenotypes that have the highest survival. d) Genotypes accumulate in the gene pool because they code for phenotypes that have the highest survival. e) None of these answers is correct

    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.
