10.Do these results vary between the populations founded by beakers 1, 2, and 3? Why or why not?
11.What observations can you make about the genetic variation between the parent and founding populations?
12.Suppose you have a population of 300 butterflies. If the population experiences a net growthof 12% in the following year, how many butterflies do you have?
13.Now suppose you have 300 eggs, but only 70% of those eggs progress to become a caterpillar, and only 80% of the caterpillar progress to become an adult butterfly. How many butterflies do you have? (For simplicity, assume that all butterflies survive to the next year, inthis example.)
14.Suppose you have a population of 150 butterflies, but a wildfire devastates the population and only 24 butterflies survive. What percentage does the colony decrease by?
Experiment 4: Natural Selection15.How did the distribution of phenotypes change over time?
16.Is there a selective advantage or disadvantage for the red and/or blue phenotypes?
17.What phenotypic results would you predict if starting with the following population sizes?
18.Assume that you live in a country with 85 million people that consistently experience an annual growth rate of 4.2%. If this population continues to grow at the same rate for the next 5 years, how many people will live in the country (round to the nearest whole number).
