Discussion 2: Interconnectedness of Life Discussion


Step one: Observation

  1.  Write a short summary, approximately a paragraph, of Table 2.1. Try to give a concise (short) but rich description of each of the four guppy pools. 
  2. Write a short summary, approximately a couple of sentences, of Tables 3 and 4. These tables discuss different characteristics related to guppy mating. 

Step Two: Draw a Conclusion

  1. What selection pressures caused the variation in the color pattern of male guppies? Support your claims with evidence. 
  2. Is it better to be bright or drab if you are a male guppy? Support your claims with evidence.
