LS4.A: Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity

Genetic information provides evidence of evolution. DNA sequences vary among species, but there are many overlaps; in fact, the ongoing branching that produces multiple lines of descent can be inferred by comparing the DNA sequences of different organisms. Such information is also derivable from the similarities and differences in amino acids

1) The spotted touch-me-not, a flowering plant, has seed pods that burst open when touched and forcefully eject their seeds. Such an adaptation is favorable because it
1. aids in the dispersal of the species.
2. attracts insects that aid in pollination.
3. prevents germination within the seed pod.
4. can cause genetic changes to occur.
2) The diagram below illustrates the change that occurred in the frequency of phenotypes in an insect population over 10 generations. A probable explanation for this change would be that over time there was
1. a decrease in the adaptive value of gene a
2. an increase in the adaptive value of gene a
