"Effective Evolution and Processes Affecting Evolution"

Please respond to one of the following discussion topics with a primary post of at least 125 words. Additionally, please make a substantive reply to a fellow student.

  • (1) Read the article by Marris (2014) on “How a few species are hacking climate change”. Based on this article, explain the difference between “phenotypic plasticity” and “genetic evolution”. When species change over time, how can we tell the difference between these two mechanisms?

  • (3) Go to the “Evolution in your life” web page (Remerowski, 2009). Click the “Listen” button. Then select one of the short 2 minute audio clips to listen to. Describe two things you learned from the audio clip and what these things teach us about evolution.
