Introduction to macroevolution, microevolution, and population genetics.
This fascinating video centers around the critical question: are humans evolving into a new species, and if so, at what rate? Juan Enriquez talks through the history of human evolution, genetic engineering, and mental "disorders."
Students investigate variation in the beta globin gene by identifying base changes that do and do not alter function, and by using several Internet-based resources to consider the significance in different environments of the base change associated with sickle cell disease.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Population Genetics.
To increase reading comprehension, activate prior knowledge, develop collaboration and communication with peers, and determine how key vocabulary words relate to one another using Text Scan.
To build a step-by-step description of a sequence for analysis, discussion, or communication using a Sequence Diagram.
Covers methods of evolution other than natural selection, effects of invasive species and ecosystems. Looks at changes in the cane toad population since their invasion of Australia.
This covers rapid speciation, punctuated equilibrium and evolution by means other than natural selection. It covers how scientists use molecular techniques.
Covers attempts to back breed aurochs through the use of genetics and back breeding. Looks at efforts to restore wild areas of Europe by reintroducing the historical herbivore of the ecosystem.
This study guide takes a look at population genetics, the Hardy-Weinberg theorem, and the forces of evolution, such as genetic drift and natural selection. It also examines how natural selection affects phenotypes.
