1. For this group of hyenas, what are the values for minimum fitness, median fitness, and maximum fitness? (6 pts)




2. Were any traits under directional selection for smaller phenotypic values? (A negative sloped trend line). (6 pts)




3. Which traits appear to be under stabilizing selection? (Use a polynomial fit with order 2). (6 pts)




4. Which traits are more likely to be under directional selection than stabilizing or disruptive selection? (The best fit is the one with the greater R2value. Select "Display R2 value on chart" to see this). (6 pts)




Graphing question:

Which trait was under the strongest directional selection for greater phenotypic values? Upload a figure with labels that supports your conclusion.

(This is the steepest slope in a linear fit. It's the "m" in the line equation y=mx+b. Select "Display equation on chart" when formatting your trend line to see this).
