Explain what is meant by a recessive allele.
Only expressed in phenotype if homozygous
1 of 6
Explain what is meant by co-dominance.
Both expressed in phenotype, if both present
2 of 6
Explain why observed ratios of phenotype is different from predicted ratios.
Chance related to mating; Random fusion of gametes; Small sample size; Differential mortality
3 of 6
Explain how a large number of fruit flies may have evolved on Hawaii.
Geographical isolation; No interbreeding; Range of habitats; Different selection pressures in separate populations; Mutation; Variation among fruit flies; Some more suited to environment; beneficial allele passed on; Unable to produce fertile offspri
4 of 6
Explain how natural selection may have produced the differences in frequency of snake colour variation
Variation due to mutation; Different environments; Camouflage; Advantageous alleles; Change in allele frequency in the next generation; No gene flow between populations
5 of 6
Suggest why one snake colour variation has remained the same over many generations.
Back mutation; Migration of banded snakes from mainland; Heterozygous advantage; stabilising selection; Selection pressure remains the same
