  1. What is natural selection? How was it derived from artificial selection
  2. What are the implications of natural selection (hint: see discussion
    in the Stein and Rowe text on directional natural selection and watch
    closely Dawkins’s discussion just after Falwell makes his Watchmaker
    metaphor in Origins of Species.
  3. Give examples of natural selection (hint: Darwin’s finches on the
    Galápagos Islands; look for that discussion in the Stein and Rowe. text.
    How did the 1977 study by the Grants test that theory regarding finches
    on Daphne Major? What did they find out in a later study in 1982?
  4. What is the other side of the equation of natural selection that
    Darwin could not have conceived of, given knowledge at the time? In
    other words, what is the real origin of species? Describe the
    mechanisms of this process, based on your readings of .genetics and
    mutation. Look it up in the Stein and Rowe. text and in the Power Point
  5. Why is mutation often regarded as a genetic error?
  6. On the creationist/intelligence design issue, what arguments of the

      in You Tube (15 points)
    2. What roles do gene flow and genetic drift play in evolutionary
      change? Again, you may look these up in your text or You Tube
