What are the Major Mechanisms for Evolutionary Change?
1. Define the term "natural selection" and indicate role that environment plays in this
process.
2. Domestic plants have been developed by artificial selection. How did you go about
developing a better broccoli plant in the broccoli game? What role did reproduction play
in the process?
3. Explain how genetic drift differs from natural selection and give an example.
4. How does population size affect genetic drift?
5. In the adaptive coloration game, which bark color allowed you the catch the most
dark-colored moths? What effect would this have had on moth color in subsequent
generations?.
6. In the reading assignment on industrial melanism, describe how the author tests his
