About this Document

this is the study exam I used just recently for my Biology 180 exam #2 this summer 2014 which covers all the topics needed in the exam. Super helpful.

EVOLUTION SUMMARY TABLE 264 Evolutionary Processes DefinitionDescription Effect on Genetic Variation Effect on Average Fitness Natural selection Certain alleles are favored Can maintain increase or reduce genetic variation Can produce adaptation increasing f ness Genetic drift Random changes in allele Tends to reduce genetic variation Random with respect to fitness frequencies most important via loss or fixation of alleles usually reduces average fitness in small populations Gene flow Movement of alleles between May increase genetic variation Random with respect to fitness populations reduces differences by introducing new alleles may may increase or decrease average between populations decrease it by removing alleles fitness by introducing high or low fitness alleles Mutation Production of new alleles Increases genetic variation by Random with respect to fitness introducing new alleles most mutations in coding sequences lower fitness SUMMARY TABLE 263 Modes of Selection 1 NATURAL

2 Genetic divergence mutation drift selection SUMMARY TABLE 272 Three Most Common Species Concepts Criterion for Identifying Populations as Species Advantages Disadvantages Biological species Reproductive isolation between populations they don t breed and don t produce viable fertile offspring Reproductive isolation evolutionary independence Not applicable to asexual or fossil species difficult to assess if populations do not overlap geographically Morphospecies Morphologically distinct populations Widely applicable Subjective researchers often disagree about how much or what kinds of morphological distinction indicate speciation misidentifies polymorphic species misses cryptic species Phylogenetic species Smallest monophyletic group on phylogenetic tree Widely applicable based on testable criteria Relatively few wellestimated phylogenies are currently available if individuals from different populations do not have unique traits or genes then there are no synapomorphies and the populations represent the same species TABLE 271 Mechanisms of Reproductive Isolation PTOCBSS Example Prezygotic Isolation Temporal Habitat Behavioral Gametic barrier Mechanical Populations are isolated because they breed at different times Populations are isolated because they breed in different habitats Populations do not interbreed because their courtship displays differ Matings fail because eggs and sperm are incompatible Matings fail because male and female reproductive structures are incompatible Bishop pines and Monterey pines release their pollen at different times of the year Parasites that begin to exploit new host species are isolated from their original population To attract male fireflies female fireflies give a speciesspecific sequence of flashes In sea urchins a protein called bindin allows sperm to penetrate eggs Differences in the amino acid sequence of bindin cause matings to fail between closely related populations In alpine skypilots a flowering plant the length of the floral tube varies Bees can pollinate in populations with short tubes but only hummingbirds can pollinate in populations with long tubes Postzygotic Isolation Hybrid viability Hybrid sterility Hybrid offspring do not develop normally and die as embryos Hybrid offspring mature but are sterile as adults When ringnecked doves mate with rock doves less than 6 percent of eggs hatch Eastern meadowlarks and western meadowlarks are almost identical morphologically but their hybrid offspring are usually infertile a Allopatric speciation different location 1 Vicariance splitting of
