BIO 100 Rio Salado Community College Natural Selection of Rabbits Questions

BIO 100 Rio Salado Community College Natural Selection of Rabbits Questions

Question Description

I’m working on a biology multi-part question and need support to help me study.

Laboratory Exercise Questions

~~1. Simulation Results.

a. Briefly describe what your fabric ‘meadow’ looked like. (1 point)

b. Which colors of rabbits were left at the end of your simulation and how many of each color remained? (4 points)

c. Why did the results come out the way they did? Explain why all of the colors of rabbits did not end up with the same final numbers in the simulated rabbit population. The explanation here should demonstrate correct understanding of natural selection. (5 points)

~~2. Influence of predation on the population size:

a. What would have happened to the simulated rabbit population’s size if there had been no predation in this simulation? (3 points)

b. If we were looking at a real-world rabbit population, what other factors might control the population of the rabbits if no predators had been in the area? (2 points)

~~3. Given our simulation rules, if Coyotus predacious and Rabbiticus hopquickus are both nocturnal (so imagine that the simulation was re-done, but this time in a completely dark room), would the specific color of each rabbit play a more important role or a less important role in determining fitness in the rabbit population? Why? (2 points)

~~4. Influence of predation on color trait diversity:

a. Given our simulation parameters, if hunters trapped all the coyotes, what would happen to the diversity of colors within the surviving rabbit population? (3 points)

b. Would all colors of rabbits have equal survival rates? Explain. (3 points)

~~5. What is the relationship between the chance to survive and reproduce and the traits an organism possesses? (5 points)

~~6. What does it mean to say that “the driving force behind evolution is the environment”? (5 points)

~~7. Given our simulation parameters, how would the simulation results differ if just ONE particular color of rabbit was able to produce six offspring in each litter while all of the other colors still only produced three per litter? (5 points)

~~8. Given our simulation parameters, how would the simulation results differ if coyotes had learned that all white rabbits tasted bad or made them ill when eaten? How would you expect the rabbit survival results to turn-out? (5 points)

~~9. Did any individual rabbit adapt to its environment? (2 points)

~~10. How is the idea of individual adaptation different from the biological concept of population adaptation? (5 points)

~~11. Give at least three examples of an environmental change that could change which traits are selected for in a population. (6 points)

a.

b.

c.

~~12. Given the same simulation starting with 100 rabbits, again with 10 rabbits of each of the 10 original colors and following the same simulation rules. But this time the environment is a yellow-flowered cloth ‘meadow.’

a. If you followed the same simulation rules, what do you predict that this population would look like after 3 generations? (2 points)

b. Explain your answer. (5 points)

~~13. Given the same simulation, but this time all 100 starting rabbits are yellow, and in this instance, the ‘meadow’ is a red cloth.

a. If you followed the same simulation rules, what do you predict that this population would look like after 3 generations? (2 points)

b. Explain your answer. (5 points)

~~14. Imagine that the rabbit population can now undergo sexual reproduction, and that rabbits with a muskier scent are more sexually attractive than rabbits without the scent. How would this affect the characteristics of a population? Explain and justify the reasoning behind this. (5 points)

~~15. How does the rate at which a species is able to reproduce impact its ability to evolutionarily adapt by the process of natural selection? Explain your response. (5 points)

Application Question

~~ 16. How might the information pertaining to evolution by natural selection gained from this lab be useful to you, or how can you apply this knowledge to your everyday life as a non-scientist? The application will be graded according to the rubric below. (20 points)
