Evolution

QuestionAnswer
What type of reproduction that creates identical offspring? asexual
What process produces non-identical gametes? meiosis
Genetic variability is created by sexual reproduction, different alleles for a gene and what? mutations
What are alternate forms of a gene called? alleles
What type of reproduction leads to genetic variability? sexual reproduction
Gametes produced through meiosis are not identical because of independent assortment AND what process? crossing over
A beneficial one of these can lead to a new allele for a gene. A harmful one of these often leads to genetic defects and death mutations
The gene for eye color might have a blue and brown one of these? alleles
If an organism has two different alleles for a trait they are said to be what? heterozygous
If a population is at a genetic equilibrium (gene frequencies remain the same) then evolution is or is not occurring? is NOT.
If natural selection is favoring a particular form of a trait and non of the other forms (black color only) then what type of selection is most likely occurring? directional
If a population is undergoing evolution then the frequency of genes is changing or not changing? changing
An individual who is Bb is a carrier of a recessive allele which promotes genetic variability. A Bb individual for a trait is said to be what? heterozygous
If a population is stable with 30% black and 70% brown, the population is in what? genetic equilibrium.
If natural selection is favoring two extreme forms of a trait (black and white but not brown), what type of selection is most likely occurring? disruptive
If natural selection is favoring the most common form of a trait then what type of selection is most likely occurring? stabilizing

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
