The fur coloration of mice studied by Hopi Hoekstra is presumed to evolve to match background habitats, including
light colored sand on beaches. What data would demonstrate that evolutionary change by natural selection could occur in mouse fur color? Keep in mind (address) each of the four postulates for evolution by natural selection. If all four postulates are satisfied, explain whether each of the following logically must occur--phenotypic selection, adaptation, and/or evolutionary change? What if you can demonstrate that three postulates are satisfied, but there is no heritability? Will evolutionary change occur? Explain your answer.
1. The data that demonstrates the fur color change is the existence of relevance between the remaining population of mice... View the full answer
