Adaptation: a physiological, morphological, or behavioral trait with an
underlying genetic basis that enhances survival and reproduction.
Allele: 1 or 2+ forms of a gene that results in the production of different
versions of the protein that
Explain how landscape ecology differs from traditional ecology.
Discuss the factors that describe landscape structure.
Discuss landscape ecology, its role within the more general field of
ecology, and how it differs from traditional ecology.
Lecture 07 Objectives
Evolution- a change in allele frequency over time. (populations evolve- individuals do not)
Explain the processes that cause evolution-Mutation- change in sequence of nucleotides in DNA.
-Natural Selection- more individuals are born
The Egg Data
From this lab we can conclude that the eggs that survived did survive
because they were hidden well. Most eggs that survived were hidden under
leaves and rocks and were harder for animals to get to and required a lot
There was no relationship between species I and A because the chi square
value was 3.12 which was less that the 5.99 threshold.
Between species J and K, there was a positive relationship because the chi
