Bio Exam 3 Study Guide Chapters 23 24 2933 1 Natural selection changes allele frequencies because some survive and reproduce better than others a Alleles b Loci c Species 01 Individuals 2 Evolution at it s smallest scale is called a Macroevolution b Evolution c Microevolution d Genoevolution 3 True or false genetic variation originates when mutation gene duplication or other processes produce new alleles and genes a True b False 4 The Hardy Weinberg equation is used for what a Determining the number of parents in the next generation b Determining the amount that a populations genotypesphenotypes have evolved c Determining the amount of change a population has undergone d Determining the amount of dominant alleles in the next generation 5 No two people are genetically identical except for identical twins The main source of genetic variation among humans is a New mutations that occurred in the preceeding generation b Genetic drift c The reshuf ing of alleles in reproduction 01 Environmental effects 6 In the formula for determining a population s genotype frequencies the 2 in the term 2pq is necessary because a The population is diploid b Heterozygotes can come about in 2 ways c The population is doubling in number 01 Heterozygotes have 2 alleles 7 Swine are vulnerable to infection by bird u virus and human virus which can both be present in an individual pig at the same time When it occurs it is possible for genes from bird u virus and human u virus to be combines thereby producing a genetically distinctive virus which can subsequently cause widespread disease The production of u virus in the manner described above is most similar to the phenomenon of a Bottleneck effect b Founder effect C Natural selection d Gene ow 8 You sample a population of butter ies and nd that 56 are heterozygous at a particular locus What should be the frequency of the recessive allele in this population a 007 b 008 c 070 d Allele frequency cannot be determined from this information 9 In peas a gene controls ower color such that R purple and r white In an isolated pea patch there are 36 purple owering plants and 64 white owering plants Assuming HardyWeinberg equilibrium what is the value of q for this population a 080 b 064 c 060 d 075 10 True or false prezygotic and postzygotic barriers separate gene pools due to reproductive isolation a True b False 1 1 Males of differnet species of the fruit y Drosophjla that live in the same parts of the Hawaiian Islands have different elaborate courtship rituals These rituals involve fighting other males and making stylized movements that attract females What type of reproductive isolation does this represent Habitat isolation Behavioral isolation Temporal isolation Gametic isolation 12 Allopatric speciation is Gene ow interrupted when a population is separated by gametic isolation b Gene ow interrupted when a population is separated by temporal isolation c Gene ow interrupted when a population is divided into two geographically different subpopulations d Gene ow interrupted when a population is divided into two behaviorally different subpopulations 13 Sympatric speciation is a Gene ow interrupted when a population is divided into two geographically different subpopulations b New species developing when remaining in the same geographic are as the parent species c Gene ow interrupted when a population is divided into two behaviorally different subpopulations 9065 E d New species originating from a mutation in the parent species 14 True or false a hybrid zone is a spot within an ecosystem where species go to mate speci cally to produce hybrids a True b False 15 True or false reinforcement the strengthening of hybrids by natural selection can also be considered disruptive selection a True b False 16 A pattern of evolution in which long stable periods are interrupted by brief periods of more rapid change is called The bottle neck effect Reinforcement Punctuated equilibrium The founder effect 17 All of the following are common to both charophytes and land plants except Sporopollenin Cellulose Lignin Chlorophyll 18 The following are all adaptations

on the sporophyte generation The growing embryo gives rise to the gametophyte The sporophyte generation is dominant 21 True or false Microspores are the female reproductive sporangia and megaspores are the male reproductive sporangia a True b False 22 Microphylls are found in which plant group Ferns Lycophytes Hornworts Liverworts 23 Where in an angiosperm would you find a megasporangium P PF P
